Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said low U.S. inflation, while probably restrained by temporary factors, remains a concern as the labor market nears a sweet spot.

“A large part of the current inflation is temporary,” Fischer said in an interview Monday with Tom Keene on Bloomberg Television. After the effects of cheaper oil and other raw materials dissipate, “these things will stabilize at some point, so we’re not going to be as low as we are forever.”
