Higher prices?

The Oklahoman - - MONEY & MARKETS -

Economists ex­pect that a gauge of U.S. whole­sale prices rose last month.

They pre­dict the La­bor Depart­ment will re­port to­day that its pro­ducer price in­dex edged up 0.4 per­cent in Jan­uary. That would rep­re­sent a gain from De­cem­ber, when whole­sale prices fell 0.1 per­cent, pulled lower by cheaper foods and lower ship­ping costs. The in­dex mea­sures the cost of goods be­fore they reach the con­sumer.
