Consumer prices surged at the fastest pace in nearly four decades in November as Americans paid more for practically everything from groceries to cars to gasoline, solidifying hot inflation as a key trait of the economic recovery.
The consumer price index rose 6.8% in November from a year ago, according to a new Labor Department report released Friday. The CPI – which measures a bevy of goods ranging from gasoline and health care to groceries and rents – jumped 0.8% in the one-month period from October.
It marks the fastest increase in consumer prices since June 1982, when inflation hit 7.1%.
Economists expected the index to show that prices surged 6.8% in November from the year-ago period and 0.7% from the previous month.
BREAKING: Inflation in November rose to 6.8% (y/y) – the highest since 1982.
