06.03.2023 - The consumer price index (CPI) increased by 0.7% in February 2023 compared with the previous month, reaching 105.8 points (December 2020 = 100). Inflation was +3.4% compared with the same month of the previous year. These are the results of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

The 0.7% increase compared with the previous month is due to several factors including rising prices for air transport, package holidays and supplementary accommodation. Housing rentals also recorded a price increase, as did petrol. In contrast, prices for heating oil decreased as well as those for new cars and berries.
