were revised down by 0.1 points to -2.4%. U.S. import prices fell y/y by -6.8%,
the biggest 12-month fall since December 2015, when the index dropped -8.3%.
Import fuel prices fell by -31.5%, the biggest m/m decline since that index was

export prices since the index was first published on a monthly basis in December
1988." U.S. agricultural export prices fell by -3.1% with non-ag prices falling
