Producer prices for services went up in July-September

According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for services went up by 5.2 per cent in the third quarter of 2008 from the corresponding quarter of the year before. The rise in the prices was mostly due to increases in the prices of goods transport by road, technical consultancy and business and management consulting from the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The rise of prices was curbed most by lower prices of telecommunication.

From the previous quarter, producer prices for services rose by 0.3 per cent. This was mainly due to higher prices of goods transport by road.
