Collapsing energy and transportation prices quenched inflation in the metro area in the first half of 2009, according to a report Friday from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The consumer price index for Denver-Boulder-Greeley decreased 0.6 percent between the first half of 2008 and the first half of 2009.
Inflation ran at a hot 3.9 percent rate last year.
