This shouldn't be a shock to the sober and objective, but June's PPI reading came in at +9.1% year over year. This was higher than heightened expectations, and the highest monthly reading the US has printed since 1981.

Oil's spike contributed most to the month over month rise, climbing +6% sequentially. The aggregate month over month PPI increase was +1.8% versus May.
