· Jan. 20, 2016, 11:05 pm

Inflation rose 1.4 percent in the Denver-Boulder-Greeley area during the second half of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014, according to the Consumer Price Index.

Energy costs were down 19 percent, but inflation still increased overall because of housing costs. Renters and home owners saw an increase of 5.8 percent. Food prices were unchanged.

Some good news - while inflation in the second half of last year did rise – it did so at a lower percentage than in that same period in 2014.
