That was shy of expectations for 1.0 percent and up from 0.4 percent in March.
On a monthly basis, consumer prices fell 0.3 percent – again missing forecasts for a decline of 0.2 percent following the 0.5 percent decline in the previous month.
The bureau also said that producer prices jumped 6.8 percent on year in April – exceeding expectations for a gain of 6.5 percent and up from the 4.4 percent increase a month earlier.
