ADJ at n

Productive use

A prepositional phrase consisting of at and an amount is used after a comparative adjective to indicate the price of something, as in Tesco's salmon steaks are 86p cheaper at £3.79 per pound. The adjective often follows a verb such as close, end, or open, either immediately or after a noun group (see section 82). This is often used to indicate the price of shares as in British Gas ended higher at 215p... Electricity ended the week around 18 per cent lower at 608p... The shares ended the day 3p stronger at 65p.
