The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by higher prices of oil products and food and by the risen cost of district heat from July of the previous year. The increase was curbed above all by lower prices of metals and electricity.

From June to July, producer prices for manufactured products rose by 0.1 per cent. The rise was mainly due to increased prices of oil products.
