Producer Price Index Up One Point in February


The producer price index increased 1 point to 201.6 in February. It is up 5.8 points (3%) from February 2011 and a massive 20.6 points (11.4%) over February 2010. The index is still below the pre-recession peak of 205.5 in July 2008 and post-recession peak of 204.6 reached in July 2011. The past few months of stable PPI indicate that the production side of the economy has stabilized.
