There is a skewed upside risk to the CPI numbers due to the continued rise in new and used vehicle prices and housing costs. In their preview, Scoita highlights the vehicles in particular:

  • when combined, used and new vehicle prices are expected to add 0.2-0.3% m / m to the core CPI even before we turn to other considerations. Then take that for the core CPI which is around 79% of the total CPI to get a total vehicle contribution to core CPI inflation of around 0.3-0.4% m / m. If this tracking of vehicle prices translates well into the CPI, it is also likely that the related category of auto insurance premiums will not recur as one of the top three downsides to the US CPI in August.
