DUBAI, May 21 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's consumer prices fell in April from a year earlier, for the fourth month in a row, but the consumer price index (CPI) was unchanged compared to March, government data showed on Tuesday.
The CPI index for April fell 1.9 percent from a year earlier and was flat from March, data from the General Authority for Statistics showed.
The annual CPI decline has partly reflected the fading impact of last year's introduction of a value-added tax (VAT), economists have said.
