U.S. Inflation Is Even Higher for Consumers Who Are Over Age 62

While U.S. consumer prices in July generally rose more than economists expected, the news was somewhat worse for people over 62.

A separate Bureau of Labor Statistics index that tracks prices associated with older consumers climbed 1.3% last month from a year earlier, compared with 1% for the consumer price index overall in Wednesday’s inflation report. The agency this month made the data available on its website; previously it was provided only on request.
