“Inflation in the UK has been well below target for most of the last two years, with the sharp declines in oil prices being a particular drag on prices. Even the [year-on-year] core number though, which strips out the direct impact of volatile energy, food, alcohol and tobacco moves, has been well short of the Bank of England’s 2% target and even this month is only expected to rise to 1.3%” written in the report from Oanda.
