Export prices in the US rose 0.2 percent month-over-month in April 2019, following a downwardly revised 0.6 percent gain in the previous month and below market expectations of a 0.5 percent increase. Cost of nonagricultural exports led the overall advance in April and more than offset a decline in prices for agricultural exports. Prices of nonagricultural export increased 0.4 percent, after rising 0.7 percent the previous month, mainly driven by cost of nonagricultural industrial supplies and materials and automotive vehicles. Meanwhile, cost of agricultural exports fell 1.5 percent, following a 1.0 percent increase in March, mostly due to vegetables (-17.2 percent), fruits (-6.8 percent) and corn (-2.6 percent). Year-on-year, export prices went up 0.3 percent, after a 0.6 percent gain in March and missing market forecasts of a 0.6 percent rise. Export Prices in the United States averaged 109.17 Index Points from 1983 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 135.30 Index Points in September of 2011 and a record low of 82.40 Index Points in September of 1986.
