The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) said Thursday the Producer Price Index (PPI) bounced back strongly in September, meeting the median forecast.

Rising energy costs caused prices at the wholesale level to climb 0.4 percent in September.

The personal-consumption-expenditures price index, which is the Federal Reserve's preferred inflation gauge, grew a modest 1.4% in August from a year earlier, undershooting the Fed's 2% target. In the 12 months through September, the PPI rose 2.6 percent.
