Among the reasons for the fallen producer prices for manufactured products were reductions in the prices of oil products and metals from last year's June. The fall in the prices was curbed by risen prices of district heat.
From May to June producer prices for manufactured products rose by 0.4 per cent. The rise in prices was particularly attributable to increases in the prices of oil products and non-ferrous metals. The rise in prices was curbed by a fall in the price of fertilisers.
