Meanwhile, Core CPI rose 0.1% month-over-month in September, below the prior month's reading of 0.2%, and below expectations of 0.2%.

Consumer prices edged up 0.2 percent on a monthly basis in September after edging up 0.1 percent in August, the office said.

Much of the rise was due to a sharp rise in gasoline prices. Prices for food at home were unchanged, while food away from home grew 0.3%.

Over the last 12 months, the all-items index rose 2.2%. Core prices have risen at that same annual rate since May. Officials were split on whether to hike rates for the third time this year, which would likely be in December.

Market watchers were looking to Friday's inflation data for flickers of growth after the minutes of the Federal Reserve's policy meeting in September, which were released earlier this week, showed that many Fed officials are concerned that inflation will remain lower for longer. These increases more than offset declines in the indexes for new vehicles, household furnishings and operations, medical care, and used cars and trucks.
