Inflation Falls To Lowest Rate in Two Years

UK inflation rate (excluding owner occupiers' housing costs) fell to 2.1% in December, from 2.3% the previous month, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH) 12-month inflation rate was 2.0% in December 2018, down from 2.2% in November 2018.

The largest downward contributions to change in the 12-month rate came from falls in petrol prices and from air fares, where ticket prices rose between November and December 2018, but by less than a year ago.

Given this and the ongoing Brexit uncertainty there is no way that the Bank of England will raise rates.
