Inflation Stayed High in September – The Wall Street Journal


U.S. inflation accelerated slightly in September, as pandemic-related shortages of labor and materials continued to push up prices.

The Labor Department said the consumer-price index—which measures what consumers pay for goods and services—rose a seasonally adjusted 0.4% in September from August. That is faster than in August but down markedly from June’s 0.9% pace.
