Visualizing the UK’s Inflation and Fuel Prices

This year we’ve seen lots of news about the alarming increases on fuel prices and the growing inflation rates. Since media headlines can sometimes be somewhat exaggerated, I wanted to look at the real numbers myself and draw my own conclusions.

To create the below data viz I used the Consumer Price Inflation Index data from the UK’s Office for National Statistics; and the Fuel prices from the UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.


  • This is a data analysis and visualization exercise which I did out of my own interest and curiosity.
