SALT LAKE CITY — The Zions Bank Wasatch Front Consumer Price Index increased 0.1 percent in April. In comparison, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that prices decreased 0.1 percent nationally in April.
Over the past 12 months, prices along the Wasatch Front have risen nearly 2 percent, compared with 1.1 percent nationally. Decreasing utility prices mostly offset rising transportation prices for the month, resulting in the nominal overall hike in the Wasatch Front CPI from March to April.
Education and communication prices also fell, as the price of personal computer accessories decreased again. However, most other prices were relatively unchanged.
