The article reports that U.S. import price index declined for two succeeding months. The March decline was triggered by a 0.7 percent decrease in petroleum imports prices and a 0.3 percent fall in non-petroleum import prices, which also prompted the natural gas price drop of 13 percent. However, non-fuel imports saw a small gain of 0.1 percent.
