    The U.S. Commerce Department released the producer price index figures on Friday. The U.S. producer price index rose 0.2% in April, missing expectations for a 0.3% rise, after a 0.1% drop in March.

     

     

    The increase was mainly driven by a rise in services prices.

     

     

    Energy prices increased 0.2% in April, wholesale food prices decreased 0.3%.

     

     

    Services prices were up 0.1% in April, while prices for goods rose 0.2%.

     

     

    On a yearly basis, the producer price index was flat in April, after a 0.1% decline in March.
