12-month percent changes in the Producer Price Index for Finished Goods, not seasonally adjusted, September 2001–September 2010
[Chart data]

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods increased 0.4 percent in September, seasonally adjusted. This advance followed a 0.4-percent rise in August and a 0.2-percent increase in July.

The broad-based increase in the index for finished goods can be traced primarily to higher prices for finished consumer foods, which rose 1.2 percent (seasonally adjusted) in September. The indexes for both finished energy goods and for finished goods less foods and energy also contributed to this increase, moving up 0.5 percent and 0.1 percent, respectively.

These data are from the BLS Producer Price Index program. To learn more, see "Producer Price Indexes — September 2010" (HTML) (PDF), news release USDL-10-1425.
