<p><strong>The food index declined in March, while the indexes for energy and for all items less food and energy rose,</strong> leading to the slight seasonally adjusted increase in the all items index. The food index fell 0.2 percent after rising in February, as five of the six major grocery store food groups declined. The energy index rose for the first time since November, with all of its major components except natural gas increasing.</p>

Major component indexes were mixed in March. <strong>The indexes for shelter, recreation, medical care, education, tobacco, and personal care were among those that rose</strong>, while the indexes for <strong>apparel, airline fares, communication, household furnishings and operations, and used cars and trucks all declined</strong>.</p>
