US Producer Prices Climb 0.4% In October, More Than Expected

A gauge of US business prices rose at a steady pace in October, a sign that inflation pressures are building.

Producer prices in the USA increased by more than expected in the month of October, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Tuesday.

The Labor Department said its producer price index for final demand climbed by 0.4 percent in October, matching the increase seen in September.

Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal had expected a 0.1% gain in overall producer prices and a 0.2% in core prices.

Excluding food and energy prices, core producer prices also rose by 0.4 percent in October after a matching increase in the previous month. But many economists expect price pressures to rise as the economy improves.

Compared to the same month a year ago, producer prices were up by 2.8 percent in October and core producer prices were up by 2.4 percent. The uptick from October 2016 was the biggest since February 2012.

The Federal Reserve is closely monitoring inflation as it considers another increase in short-term interest rates by the end of the year. But inflation has continued to undershoot the Fed's targets, with other inflation-related readings coming in weak, despite a tight labor market and strong economic growth.
