Prices for many items continued to rise in the US last month, despite a sharp increase in interest rates to stamp out inflation.

The rate of inflation rose at 3.2% over the year to July, driven by higher housing, car insurance and food costs, the Labor Department said.

That was up from 3% in June, which was the lowest rate in more than two years.

Analysts had expected the increase in the headline rate, after relatively weak price inflation last July.
