CHEAPER GASOLINE RESTRAINS U.S. CONSUMER PRICES –

CHEAPER GASOLINE RESTRAINS U.S. CONSUMER PRICES – U.S. consumer prices were unchanged for a third straight month in January, leading to the smallest annual increase in inflation in more than 1 ½ years, which could allow the Federal Reserve to hold interest rates steady for a while. The Labor Department said Wednesday its Consumer Price Index last month was held down by cheaper gasoline, which offset increases in the cost of food and rents. (Reuters)
