(Washington) Inflation in the United States slowed further in February to 6% year on year, its lowest level for almost a year and a half, at a time when the Fed, responsible for curbing this rise in prices, is under pressure with the bankruptcy of the SVB bank.

Inflation also slowed over one month, to 0.4%, again in line with analysts’ expectations, after rebounding in January, according to the CPI index published on Tuesday by the Labor Department.
