05.05.2022 - The consumer price index (CPI) increased by 0.4% in April 2022 compared with the previous month, reaching 103.3 points (December 2020 = 100). Inflation was +2.5% compared with the same month of the previous year. These are the results of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

The 0.4% increase compared with the previous month is due to several factors including rising prices for heating oil. New cars also recorded a price increase, as did air transport. In contrast, prices for hotel accommodation and supplementary accommodation decreased.
