May 13, 2011 by SteveT   Comments (0)

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) – U.S. consumer prices rose a seasonally adjusted 0.4% in April, led by higher gasoline costs, the Labor Department reported Friday. So-called core prices rose a lesser 0.2%.

Consumer prices have jumped an unadjusted 3.2% over the past year, the largest 12-month increase since October 2008.
