CPI – Consumer Price Inflation

Consumer Price Inflation, July 2013: ONS

  • The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) grew by 2.8% in the year to July 2013, down from 2.9% in June.
  • The largest contributions to the fall in the rate came from air fares, plus price movements in the recreation & culture, and clothing & footwear sectors. A rise in petrol and diesel prices partially offset the fall.
  • The other main inflation measures moved in a similar fashion to the CPI. CPIH grew by 2.5% down from 2.7%, RPIJ grew by 2.6% down from 2.7%, and RPI (not a National Statistic) grew by 3.1% down from 3.3%.
