Non-energy commodity prices in September rose for the third straight month, up 3.9 percent, due to supply constraints and a weakening U.S. dollar—down 1.5 percent versus the euro. For the first nine months of the year, non-energy prices are up 17.9 percent, with large gains in iron ore and fertilizers.
