The basic price index for domestic supply fell by 7.9 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was -8.5 per cent.

Among the reasons for the fallen producer prices for manufactured products were reductions in the prices of metals, chemicals and oil products from last year's October. The fall in the prices was curbed by risen cost of district heat.

From September to October, producer prices for manufactured products went up by 0.1 per cent. The rise in the prices came especially from increased cost of oil products. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of electronic products.
