The Labor Department said on Friday its producer price index for final demand dropped 0.2% last month after rebounding 0.4% in May. In the 12 months through June, the PPI declined 0.8% after decreasing 0.8% in May.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the PPI climbing 0.4% in June and falling 0.2% on a year-on-year basis.
