On a yearly basis, producer prices were up 0.6 percent – exceeding forecasts for 0.5 percent but unchanged from the July reading following an upward revision from 0.5 percent.

Among the individual components, prices were up for engineering, legal and architectural services; they were down for transportation, advertising and real estate services.
