Canada October producer prices seen up 1.3% on energy - Statscan flash estimate

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Producer prices in Canada most likely rose by 1.3% in October from September, on higher prices for energy and petroleum products, Statistics Canada said in a flash estimate on Tuesday.

The increase was mostly due to higher prices for refined petroleum energy products, which rose by 8.1%. The increase was partially attributable to a supply-demand imbalance for petroleum.
