US inflation at 5%, the lowest it has been since 2021
Inflation cooled in March as the Federal Reserve’s interest rate increases showed more impact, the Labor Department reported Wednesday. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) climbed 0.1% last month after advancing 0.4% in February. In the 12 months through March, the CPI increased 5.0%, the smallest year-on-year gain since May 2021. Excluding food and energy, core CPI increased 0.4% and 5.6% on an annual basis, both as expected. Inflation by all measures remains more than double the Fed's 2% target.
