United Kingdom Inflation December 2017

United Kingdom: Inflation dips in December but remains elevated

Consumer prices rose 0.4% in December over the previous month, up from November’s 0.3% rise and matching analysts’ expectations. December’s figure was largely driven by higher prices for transportation and furniture, household equipment and maintenance.

Inflation in December ebbed to 3.0%, down from 3.1% in the prior month and in line with market expectations. The largest downward contribution to the figure came from air fares, which didn’t rise by as much as they did in the same period last year. Annual average inflation increased from 2.6% in November to 2.7% in December.
