US Skeptical of Russia's Newest IS Claims

The United States is pushing back against claims by Russian President Vladimir Putin that the Islamic State terror group is starting to execute hundreds of hostages in Syria, including U.S. and European nationals. Putin made the claims Thursday during the Valdai forum in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, saying IS had taken 700 people from a displaced persons camp near Deir el-Zour in an area controlled by U.S.-backed forces. "They have issued ultimatums, specific demands, and warned that...

U.S. Consumer Prices Rise Less Than Forecast as Autos Decline
Thursday, 10 May 2018 19:51 WIB | ECONOMY |CPI Amerika

U.S. consumer prices rose by less than forecast in April as costs for automobiles and airfares declined, reducing chances that inflation will run significantly above the Federal Reserve's target in coming months.

The consumer-price index advanced 0.2 percent from the prior month after a March decline of 0.1 percent, a Labor Department report showed Thursday, compared with the Bloomberg survey median of a 0.3 percent gain. Excluding food and energy, the core gauge was up a below-forecast 0.1 percent from March -- the least since November and 2.1 percent from a year earlier, compared with projections for 2.2 percent. 

Prices for used cars had the biggest monthly drop since 2009 and airfares fell the most in four years. The report suggests inflation isn™t flaring up in a way that would be troublesome for policy makers, despite higher freight costs, a tight labor market and tariffs that are burdening businesses. The Fed is projected to raise rates in June for the second time this year after its preferred gauge of inflation -- a separate consumption-based figure -- reached its 2 percent goal in March.

While rising gasoline prices are pinching Americans' wallets, fuel is providing only a modest boost to the broad CPI, which rose 2.5 percent in April from a year earlier. Seasonally adjusted gas prices rose 3 percent in April from the previous month after a 4.9 percent drop in March, according to the report.

The core CPI reading brought the three-month annualized gain to 1.8 percent, the lowest since July, after 2.9 percent.

The shelter category rose 0.3 percent from the prior month after a 0.4 percent gain. Owners-equivalent rent, one of the categories designed to track rental prices, advanced 0.3 percent. Hotel and motel rates, which had posted an outsize gain in March, rose 0.8 percent in April. 

Investors see the Fed as on track to raise interest rates at its June meeting, with policy makers expecting one or two more additional hikes in 2018. The unemployment rate fell to 3.9 percent in April, the lowest since late 2000, signaling the central bank is near its goal of maximum employment. 

Commerce Department figures released April 30 showed the Fed's separatepreferred gauge of inflation met policy makers' 2 percent target in March for the first time in a year. The preferred core index, seen by officials as a better gauge of underlying inflation trends, was up 1.9 percent from March 2017. 

Wages, which feed into inflation pressures, are growing only moderately even as the job market is tight. A separate report released Thursday by the Labor Department showed average hourly earnings adjusted for inflation rose 0.2 percent from April 2017.
