  • The energy component saw more deflationary pressures on the Y/Y print to -27.5% Y/Y (vs -23.9% prior), the most since September 2023. Energy prices also deflated on the month at -2.3% M/M (vs -1.0% prior).
  • Intermediate goods remained in deflationary territory but increase slightly to -4.9% Y/Y (vs -5.1% prior).
  • Elsewhere, capital, durable consumer, and non-durable consumer goods all saw falls in their Y/Y rates, coming in at 2.8% (vs 3.1% prior), 3.0% (vs 3.5% prior) and 3.2% (vs 3.6% prior), respectively, suggesting further downside pressure on non-energy industrial goods CPI in the coming months.
