The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) ended Wednesday's session in the green, gaining 0.23% to close at 7,050.3 points.

Its gains came amid the release of the latest Australian inflation figures. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) found the nation's consumer price index (CPI) rose 6.8% over the 12 months to February. That's down from 7.4% over the 12 months to January.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) was among the top-performing sectors, rising 1.2%. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) also outperformed, lifting 1.2% on Wednesday.

It wasn't so sunny over on the S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ), which fell 0.5% amid reports UBS has downgraded a swath of bank shares on the back of what has been dubbed a crisis among United States and European banks.

So, with all that in mind, let's take a look at the ASX 200 share that outperformed all others in today's session.
