The CPI rent index will likely keep moving higher as the year goes on. There's still an element of catch-up in the CPI data just given the way the index is constructed. The debate among inflation forecasters is whether it finishes this year closer to say 6% YoY or 7%-7.5%.
You can't say that you "understand the hardship" that inflation is causing and then tell people that if you strip out food and energy, inflation's coming down.
