U.S. Consumer Prices in Rose in February

March 15 (Bloomberg) -- The cost of living in the U.S. rose more than projected in February due to the biggest jump in gasoline prices in more than three years. The consumer-price index was up 0.7 percent, a Labor Department report showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 81 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.5 percent increase. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s general economic index eased to 9.2 this month from 10 in February, which was the highest since May.
