Tampa, Florida, Is Only US Metro Area With Double-Digit Inflation

Most US cities saw a break last month from relentless price increases, as cheaper gasoline helped slow inflation.

Only the Tampa, Florida, metropolitan area had double-digit inflation -- up 11.2%, little changed from the 11.3% high in May. Several cities saw declines of at least a half percentage point, including San Diego, where inflation cooled to 7.3% on a year-over-year basis from 8.3% two months earlier.
