Inflation at 0%

Consumer Price Inflation, August 2015: ONS

  • The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) was unchanged in the year to August 2015, that is, a 12-month rate of 0.0%, down from 0.1% in the year to July 2015.
  • A smaller rise in clothing prices on the month compared with a year ago was the main contributor to the slight fall in the rate. There were also downward effects from changes in motor fuel prices and sea fares.
  • Rising prices for soft drinks and for furniture and furnishings partially offset the fall.
