What is inflation?

We all know that in general that prices change: we see the price of fuel changing up and down as we see exchange rates. Inflation tries to capture this.

Inflation is defined as an increase in the general level of prices,  eroding the value of money.

Inflation is measured using the CPI and RPI indices and mathematically is the percentage change per annum in these price indices.
