The monthly pro­ducer price in­dex due to­day mea­sures price changes be­fore they reach the con­sumer. The in­dex rose 0.4 in Novem­ber, re­flect­ing re­tail­ers’ higher profit mar­gins and more ex­pen­sive food. Economists fore­cast that the pro­ducer price in­dex gained another 0.3 per­cent last month.
