Inflation statistics are always kind of hard to read -- what is driving the rise? Is it across the board or a glitch in one sectors? The media tries to deal with it by presenting a second number which is the number without the more volatile food and energy number. The combination of the two gives a bit more information.
But this simple chart is way better. It shows inflation by component at the same time while showing how much that component is weighted in the overall metric. Via zero hedge.
