Consumer prices in February: Annual inflation up from 1.8% to 2.1%
06-03-2019 | STATEC


Following the monthly decrease in January due to winter sales, the consumer price index, compiled by STATEC, is increasing by 1.5% in February. However, when neutralizing the effect of higher prices due to the end of the winter sales period, the index still increases by 0.2% compared to the previous month. This movement is mainly explained by a new rise in prices of oil products. The annual inflation rate is increasing to reach 2.1% in February.
