Headline: Producer and Import Price Index fell by 0.1% in July 2019
The Producer and Import Price Index fell by 0.1% in July 2019 compared with the previous month, reaching 101.6 points (December 2015 = 100). The decline is due in particular to lower prices for scrap as well as petroleum and natural gas. Compared with July 2018, the price level of the whole range of domestic and imported products fell by 1.7%. These are some of the findings from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
