ECRI Inflation Gauge Rises

U.S. inflationary pressures were up in August, as the U.S. future inflation gauge grew to 101.9 from an unrevised July 101.2 reading, according to data released Friday morning by the Economic Cycle Research Institute.

"While rising further above March's 16-month low, the USFIG remains well below its earlier highs," ECRI Chief Operations Officer Lakshman Achuthan said in a release. "Thus, underlying inflation pressures are still fairly subdued."

ECRI produces a monthly Lagging index. The July's economy's rate of growth (released in August) showed a slightly slower economy.
