The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 5.4% between October 2020 and September 2021 (12 months) as this publication of the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows. This represents an increase compared to the previous report. In September the CPI increased 0.4%

The main drivers of this rise have been the price of food and energy. According to these results, the inflationary pressure is still pushing the CPI.
