US consumer prices were unchanged in January, the Labour Department reported Thursday. Excluding volatile food and energy prices, the seasonally adjusted consumer price index was up 0.3 per cent, driven by higher housing and clothing costs. The so-called core inflation was offset by
falling petrol prices.
The annual consumer price index was up 1.6 per cent in the 12 months through January.
