Consumer prices rose above the 0.5 percent expectations, to 0.6 percent in September, according to the index. The year-to-date reading was a solid 2.0 percent, which is just slightly more than the 1.9 percent expectation.
The trend is expected to continue in the coming months, according to a recent report from BusinessInsider.com.
