Wholesale prices rise 8.6% year over year in October, tied for highest ever


Final demand prices rose 8.6% from a year ago in October, their highest annual pace in records going back 10 years, the Labor Department said Tuesday.

The government’s producer price index, which serves as a gauge of wholesale prices from goods-producers, rose 0.6% for the month, in line with Dow Jones estimates and an indicator that inflation pressures are continuing to pressure the U.S. economy. The monthly pace was faster than the 0.5% increase in September.

Stripping out food, trade and energy prices, the index increased 0.4% month over month, slightly below the 0.5% estimate but an elevated pace from September’s 0.1% gain. On a year-over-year basis, core producer prices increased 6.2%.
