The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was caused especially by increased prices of oil products from February 2007. The rising of the prices was held back by fallen prices of electric energy.

From January to February, producer prices for manufactured goods went up by 0.8 per cent due to risen prices of, among other things, copper, chemicals and oil products. The rising of the prices was curbed by fallen prices of electrical products.
