U.S. Wholesale Prices Rise More Than Forecast

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Wholesale prices in the U.S. rose more than forecast in September, reflecting a jump in fuel costs that failed to trickle down to other goods. The producer price index climbed 1.1 percent after a 1.7 percent gain in August, the Labor Department reported today in Washington. The so-called core producer inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, was unchanged, the first time it didn’t increase since October 2011.
