Wholesale inflation remained painfully high at 11% in April, report Thursday said

  • It was a slight decrease from the 11.5% rate in March but still near record highs

  • Food products for final demand rose 16.3% in April from a year ago

The 11 percent year-over-year increase in April is a slight decline from the 11.5 percent annual gain in March, which was the biggest increase since records began in 2010.
