Consumer prices in November
December 15, 1999
On a seasonally adjusted basis, the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) rose 0.1 percent in November, following a 0.2 percent increase in October. Excluding food and energy, the CPI-U rose 0.2 percent in November, the same as in October.
In the CPI-U less food and energy, a larger increase in shelter costs was offset by a downturn in the index for apparel and a smaller increase in airline fares. The energy index, which declined 0.1 percent in October, was unchanged in November. The food index increased 0.1 percent in November, following increases of 0.2 percent in each of the preceding four months.
For the 12-month period ended in November, the unadjusted CPI-U increased 2.6 percent. During the same period, the CPI-U less food and energy rose 2.1 percent.
