MarketWatch (05/15/13) Jeffry Bartash
U.S. wholesale prices declined sharply in April by a seasonally adjusted 0.7% to mark the biggest drop in more than three years, the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had predicted a 0.7% decrease in April, following a 0.6% decline in March. Waning price pressures in April lowered the increase in wholesale costs over the past 12 months to 0.6% from 1.1%, the lowest level since last summer.
