“In effect, we expect a 1% jump in gasoline prices to support inflation in the non-core segment.”

“Conversely, core inflation should decline a tenth to 2.3% y/y, reflecting a 0.2% m/m advance. We expect core goods inflation to recover m/m, but for core services inflation to slow moderately to 0.2% m/m after four straight increases at 0.3%. We anticipate OER to advance at 0.2% m/m, following a 0.3% monthly gain, and also for the ex-shelter segment to slow modestly on a monthly basis.”
