PARIS (Reuters) - French consumer prices rose 0.7 percent in March, giving a year-on-year inflation rate of 1.4 percent, preliminary EU-harmonised data released on Friday from the INSEE national statistics office showed.
The 12-month rate was in line with a Reuters poll of 18 economists' average forecast and was unchanged from the rate recorded the previous month.
Separately, INSEE said that producer prices fell 0.2 percent in February, giving a 12-month rate of 3.9 percent.
