Consumer prices rose in March for the second consecutive month after declining through much of the winter, a sign of inflation. The consumer-price index increased a seasonally adjusted 0.2% in March from a month earlier, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Excluding the energy and food categories, core prices also rose 0.2%. Economists polled by the Wall Street Journal had forecast prices would rise 0.3% and core prices would increase 0.1%.
