Inflation in the US was up 3.1% from a year ago in Nov, in line with expectations. But core inflation rose 4% year-over-year, which is still above the 2% target.


Thanks to a steep decline in energy prices, that was a bit slower than the inflation reflected in Oct’s prices, as last month the CPI was up 3.2% over the previous year. And core prices were the same at 4%.


Consumer prices has cooled sharply since mid-2023. Policymakers suggested that the central bank is shifting toward the next phase in its fight against rapid inflation in its Dec minutes.
