While 12 percent of respondents reported paying higher prices and 54 percent reported paying lower prices, 34 percent of supply executives reported paying the same prices as the preceding month. A Prices Index above 47.6 percent, over time, is generally consistent with an increase in the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Index of Manufacturers Prices.
