Sticky Price CPI Rose 3.5 Percent in September

While the CPI Index fell 0.2% for the month of September and was flat for the year, almost entirely because of falling energy prices, the Sticky Price Index tells a different story.

The Sticky sorts the components of the consumer price index (CPI) and takes into account only  sticky (slow to change) categories based on the frequency of their price adjustment. That index shows an annualized price inflation rate of 3.5%.
