Latest UK inflation data – August 2016

Due to holidays, this month’s analysis will be limited.
CPI = 0.6% (no change)
RPI = 1.8% (down from 1.9%)

According to the ONS these changes were due to:

The main upward contributors to change in the rate were rising food prices and air fares, and a smaller fall in the price of motor fuels than a year ago.

These upward pressures were offset by falls in hotel accommodation prices, in addition to smaller rises in the prices of alcohol, and clothing and footwear than a year ago.
