Producer prices for services were pushed up particularly by higher prices of support services for transportation together with freight transport services by road from one year ago. The price increase was also affected by higher prices of food services and human health services. The rise in the prices was held back by fallen prices of renting services of construction machinery and equipment, as well as warehousing and storage services, for example.
