Inflation Fall

Published: 20 March 2019

Reuters reported "LONDON (Reuters) - British inflation fell to a two-year low in January, dipping below the Bank of England’s target and offering some relief to consumers who have tightened their belts ahead of Brexit. Consumer prices rose at an annual rate of 1.8 percent, down from December’s 2.1 percent, as a new government cap on household power bills kicked in. A Reuters poll of economists had forecast 1.9 percent."
