Consumer prices remained stable in March

11.02.2022 - The consumer price index (CPI) increased by 0.2% in January 2022 compared with the previous month, reaching 101.7 points (December 2020 = 100). Inflation was +1.6% compared with the same month of the previous year. These are the results of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

The 0.2% increase compared with the previous month is due to several factors including rising prices for gas. Hotel accommodation also recorded a price increase, as did second-hand cars. In contrast, prices for hire of private means of transport and clothing and footwear decreased, the latter due to seasonal sales.
