UK Consumer Price Index including owner-occupiers' housing costs (CPIH) increased 8.9% year-over-year in March 2023, down from 9.2% in February 2023. 

The largest downward contributions to the monthly change in both the CPIH and CPI rates came from motor fuels, and housing and household services (particularly liquid fuels), partially offset by upward contributions from food, and recreation and culture.

The upward contribution to CPIH rate has come from housing and household services (principally from electricity, gas and other fuels), and food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Year-over-year growth in the UK Consumer Price Index (CPI) was 10.1% in March 2023, down from 10.4% in February 2023.
