Consumer prices rose 0.1 per cent in October, a
considerable slowdown from inflation in September, according to a
report issued Thursday by the federal Bureau of Labour Statistics.
In September, prices rose 0.6 per cent. October's slow-down reflected falling prices for fuel, vehicles and recreation, the report said.
But so-called core inflation, which excludes the volatile prices for energy and food, showed an increase of 0.2 per cent from September, reflecting a rise in the cost of housing, clothing and airline fares. September's core inflation was 0.1 per cent.
