U.S. Inflation Hits 8.2%
U.S. inflation keeps falling—but it’s still running hotter than the Federal Reserve would like.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics dropped the latest Consumer Price Index report Thursday, showing that inflation cooled by 10 basis points in September.
The price of goods rose by 8.2% on a yearly basis last month, falling in line with economists’ expectations of a cool-off. On a monthly basis, the CPI rose by 0.5%.
It’s the third consecutive monthly decline in U.S. inflation, following a 40-year record high reading of 9.1% in June 2022.
