UK inflation rate rises to 10.1% in July 2022

The consumer prices index (CPI) measure of inflation rose to 10.1% in July 2022, according to the Office for National Statistics. CPI was 9.4% in June 2022.

The retail prices index (RPI) rose to 12.3% in July 2022.

With inflation now in double digits, it is almost impossible to remember that CPI was as low as 0.2% as recently as August 2020.

Much if the recent increases in inflation have been driven by the war in Ukraine’s impact on fuel and food prices.
