Inflation Measures Remain Subdued in August

Consumer prices rose slightly in August, up 0.3 percent from the previous month, according to a Sept. 17 report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Core CPI, which strips out volatile food and energy prices, remained unchanged in August after increasing for three consecutive months, says the report.

The Atlanta Fed's "sticky-price" CPI, which is constructed from components of the BLS report, rose at a 0.7 percent annualized rate in August. Meanwhile, core measures rose at a 0.4 percent annualized rate.
