FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Consumer prices have moderated their yearly increase in Switzerland although they remain above the 2.0% due to high energy costs, according to data released by the Swiss statistics office.

In April, consumer prices rose 0.8% from March, and 2.3% from April last year, a somewhat slower yearly increase than the 2.6% posted on the previous month. The monthly increase, however, has accelerated from the 0.3% posted in March.
