OTTAWA, June 17 (Reuters) - Canada’s annual inflation rate in May fell 0.4% as lower transportation prices, mainly because of gas prices, outweighed higher food costs, Statistics Canada said on Wednesday.
Excluding gasoline, the CPI rose 0.7%, the smallest increase since January 2013, Statistics Canada said. (Reporting by Julie Gordon, Kelsey Johnson and in Ottawa Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
