CPI: Headline Up 0.1%; Core Prices Unchanged

In March, the Consumer Price Index rose 0.1% following no change in February. The increase in prices was on net entirely due to a 0.2% increase in the price of food items. Energy prices were unchanged over the month. The core CPI, which excludes prices of food and energy, was unchanged. From a year prior, the CPI was 2.4% higher. This was down from a 2.8% rise in December, however, up from negative year-over-year changes as recently as October. The core CPI was up by a lesser 1.2% from a year prior, a new cyclical low.
