Producer prices fell 0.1% in September, for the first time since August 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Seventy-one economists surveyed by Bloomberg had forecast an increase of 0.1%. According to DOL, the decline was propelled by lower fuel costs. The core measure, which does not include fuel and food costs, was unchanged.
