US Inflation To Remain Near Fed's 2% Target: Bernanke

  @JosephLazzaro on

U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said U.S. inflation will probably remain at or below the central bank's 2 percent target, aided by a reduction in energy prices after a first-half run-up.

Bernanke also said the Fed is ready to take additional action to boost the economic frecovery, if necessary.
