     WASHINGTON (MNI) - The CPI is expected to post another 0.2% gain, same as
in August. AAA reported a small decline in mid-month prices from August, which
could reduce seasonally adjusted CPI gasoline prices after a sharp gain in the
previous month. The core CPI is forecast to rise 0.2% following an
softer-than-expected 0.1% increase in August.
     Analysts overestimated both overall and core CPI in August, even as energy
prices surged. Price declines for apparel and medical care, and a flat reading
for motor vehicle sales were key factors. For September CPI, analysts' misses
have been mixed in direction, but relatively small, as usual.
