What will be the US producer price index for Internet advertising sales in June 2022?

After years of steady declines, the price of Internet advertising began to rise in the summer of 2020 (FRED, Investopedia). The question will be suspended on 30 June 2022 and the outcome determined using data as first provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for "Internet advertising space sales, excluding Internet ads sold by print publishers" (Commodity code 36-5) in June 2022, expected in July 2022 (BLS - PPI Release Schedule). For June 2021, the unadjusted index was 65.3 (BLS PPI Report - June 2021, see page 24). For historical data, visit https://www.bls.gov/ppi/. Under "PPI Databases," select "ONE SCREEN" from "Commodity Data including 'headline' FD-ID indexes." For "1 Select a Group," select "36 Advertising space and time sales." For "2 Select one or more Items," find and select "365 Internet advertising sales, excluding Internet advertising sold by print publishers." For "3 Select Seasonal Adjustment," leave only "Not Seasonally Adjusted" checked, then click "Add to selection," and "Get Data."
