The Consumer Price Index out late this week is expected to
show inflation rose slightly in the year ended December but
that inflation pressures remain muted.
The consumers price index (CPI) has just been released,
showing inflation rose just 0.3 percent for the June 2012
quarter, less than economists were predicting. This takes the
annual rate to just 1 percent.
Inflation is expected to have risen sharply in the three
months ended December because of higher petrol prices and a
rise in GST to 15% on October 1.
