PRODUCER PRICE INDEXES -- JUNE 1994
The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods was unchanged seasonally
adjusted from May to June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U. S.
Department of Labor reported today. This followed decreases of 0.1 percent
in May and April. The Intermediate Goods Price Index increased 0.3 percent
in June after rising 0.2 percent a month earlier. Prices for crude goods
rose 0.9 percent over the month after falling in both April and May. (See
table A.)
Among finished goods in June, the index for consumer foods showed no
change and the index for finished energy goods turned up 0.3 percent; both
indexes had declined in May and April. Prices for finished goods other than
foods and energy inched down 0.1 percent, the first decline for this index
since last October.

may differ from those previously
reported because data for February 1994 have been revised to reflect the
availability of late reports and
corrections by respondents.
During the first 6 months of 1994, the Finished Goods Price Index rose
at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.6 percent. These prices moved
down at a 1.4 percent annual rate in the second half of 1993 and increased
at a 1.9 percent rate in the first half of last year. The slight
acceleration in the first half of this year was partly due to the index for
energy goods, which advanced at a 6.0 percent annual rate from December
1993 to June 1994 after falling at an 11.6 percent annual rate from June to
December 1993. In addition, prices for finished goods other than foods and
energy increased at a 2.5 percent annual rate in the first half of 1994
after moving down at a 1.3 percent annual rate in the latter half of 1993;
much of this acceleration was due to the index for motor vehicles.
Consumer food prices, however, turned down at a 3.3 percent annual rate
during the first 6 months of 1994 after increasing at a rate of 4.2 percent
in the second half of 1993.
The Intermediate Goods Price Index increased
at a 2.0 percent annual rate after showing no change in the last half of
1993, and the Crude Goods Price Index rose at a 2.2 percent annual rate
during the first half of the year after falling at a 3.4 percent annual
rate over the last 6 months of 1993.
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for Finished
Goods inched up 0.2 percent in June to 125.5 (1982=100). From June 1993
to June 1994, the Finished Goods Price index was unchanged. During this
same period, consumer food prices rose 0.4 percent, finished energy goods

fell 3.1 percent, and prices for finished goods other than foods and energy
increased 0.6 percent. The Intermediate Goods Index moved up 1.1 percent
during the 12 months ended in June 1994, and the Crude Goods Price Index
was 0.6 percent lower than a year earlier.

In June, prices for durable manufacturing materials climbed 1.4
percent following a 0.9 percent increase in May. This index rose at a 6.6

crude energy materials rose more than in the prior month, and the basic
industrial materials index rose after falling a month earlier. (See table

prices fell 8.2 percent after declining 5.7 percent a month ago, and the
raw cotton index rose less than in the previous month.
Net output price indexes for mining, manufacturing, and other industries
Mining. The Producer Price Index for the net output of total domestic
mining industries turned up 2.6 percent in June following declines in both

adjusted.) During the first half of 1994, this index rose at an annual
rate of 8.4 percent after falling at an 18.4 percent rate in the last half
of 1993. In June, the index for the oil and gas extraction group index

increases accelerated for the metal mining industry group. In June, the
Producer Price Index for total mining stood at 75.9 (December 1984=100),
down 5.7 percent from June 1993.
Manufacturing. The Producer Price Index for the domestic
manufacturing sector inched up 0.1 percent in June after increasing 0.2
percent in both April and May. From December 1993 to June 1994, this index
increased at a 2.9 percent annual rate after declining at a 1.2 percent
annual in the latter half of 1993. In June, price increases for the
petroleum refining industry group slowed from 2.4 percent in May to 1.4
percent. Increases also were recorded in June for the industry groups for
primary metal industries, nonmetallic mineral products, and for lumber and
wood products. Prices for the transportation industry group inched down
after rising a month earlier, and price increases slowed for the furniture
and fixtures industry group. The index for the domestic manufacturing
industry sector stood at 120.5 (December 1984=100) in June, 0.8 percent
higher than a year earlier.
Other. Prices turned up after falling a month earlier for tour
operators, water transportation of freight, n.e.c., and for crude petroleum
pipe lines. Price increases accelerated for waste paper collection (from
7.5 percent in May to 25.5 percent), nonferrous metal scrap collection,
electric power utilities, and scheduled air passenger transportation.

Prices fell less in June than in May for scheduled air cargo
transportation. By contrast, prices turned down in June after rising in
May for natural gas utilities, travel agencies, and radio broadcasting.
Price increases slowed for truck rental and leasing, deep sea domestic
transportation of freight, and other specialty hospitals. Price fell more
in June than in May for passenger car rental and ferrous metal scrap
collection.
