Consumer prices in the United States went up 0.3 percent month-over-month in October of 2018, higher than 0.1 percent in September and in line with forecasts. An increase in the gasoline index was responsible for over one-third of the increase; advances in the indexes for shelter, used cars and trucks, and electricity also contributed. The increases in the gasoline and electricity indexes led to a 2.4 percent rise in the energy index. The food index, in contrast, declined slightly in October. Excluding food and energy, core consumer prices edged up 0.2 percent, following a 0.1 percent gain in September and matching forecasts. Along with the indexes for shelter and for used cars and trucks, the indexes for medical care, household furnishings and operations, motor vehicle insurance, and tobacco all increased in October. The indexes for communication, new vehicles, and recreation all declined.
