Over the last 12 months, the CPI rose 1.7 percent y-o-y last month after advancing 1.6 percent y-o-y in the prior month. Economists had forecast the CPI to gain 0.2 percent m-o-m last month and 1.8 percent y-o-y in the 12-month period.

According to the report, the indexes for shelter (+0.1 percent m-o-m), medical care (+0.4 percent m-o-m), and food (+0.2 percent m-o-m) all rose in July, while the energy index (-0.1 percent m-o-m) declined slightly in July, recording its third consecutive monthly decline.
