Inflation eases for first time in 2024. Will it be enough to cut rates?


The first few months of the year brought back the specter of rising inflation during a long fight to bring prices back under control. On Wednesday, the first signs of optimism in 2024 arrived.

New data released from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed prices rose 3.4 percent in April compared with the year before.
