TOKYO, Aug. 12 (Xinhua)-- Japan's wholesale prices in July rose 4.3 percent from the same period of last year, marking the 16th straight monthly increase, the Bank of Japan said Tuesday.

The index of corporate goods prices stood at 106.6 against the 2010 base of 100, the central bank said in a preliminary report, owing the rise mainly to higher energy costs.

On a month-to-month basis, the index was up 0.3 percent, almost in line with market forecasts.

Prices for petroleum and coal products gained 11.9 percent from a year earlier amid higher crude oil prices.
