The Bureau of Labor Statistics compiles and distributes the CPI. Their website, bls.gov has a lot of information.
Here is a link to recent data on the CPI- U (Urban):
It shows the inflation for the last two six-month periods as being 2.1 %, annualized.
Just picking some of the biggest delta's from the last 6 mos. annual rate info:
Fuels (for buildings, not vehicle related) up 18.9%
Gasoline up 5.6%
Education up 6%
Personal Computers and Peripheral Equipment down
Medical Care was up only 2.8%, but Hospital and Related Services was up 4.2%
A special note
