WASHINGTON — Rising food costs drove prices up on consumer goods, but women's retail apparel prices were flat in April compared with the previous month and dropped 4.3 percent versus a year ago, the Labor Department reported Wednesday in its Consumer Price Index.
Women's apparel prices declined in March by 2.7 percent and in February by 1.8 percent. January was the last month that showed an increase in retail prices in the product category.
