The Producer Price Index, which measures wholesale inflation before goods and services reach consumers, rose 11% over the 12 months ending in April, not adjusted for seasonal swings, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Thursday.

That was a slowdown from 11.2% recorded in the year ended in March, which had been the biggest jump in prices since the data series began in November 2010.

This is a developing story. It will be updated.
