BERLIN, Sept 19 (Reuters) - German producer prices rose in August at their strongest rate since records began both in annual and monthly terms, with soaring energy prices continuing to act as a main driver, according to data released on Tuesday.

Energy prices on average were over double the same period last year, up 139%, and 20.4% higher than the previous month, the office reported.
