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% after a 1.7% gain in August, the Labor Department reported today in Washington. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of 76 economists called for a 0.8% increase. So-called core producer inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, was unchanged, the first time it didn’t increase since October 2011. Facing a global economic slowdown, businesses may have difficulty passing higher energy costs onto customers, keeping a lid on prices. In addition, weak demand from abroad and in theU.S. will probably prevent the cost of raw materials from flaring, limiting inflation pressures and allowing the Federal Reserve to focus on jump-starting employment growth. “The gain is basically all energy,” Brian Jones, a senior U.S. economist at Societe Generale in New York, said before the report. “The underlying inflation outlook is actually pretty benign. This gives the Fed room, and what matters to them right now is the labor market.”
