Inflation rises to highest level in more than two years

In February, consumer prices rose 0.7% over the previous month, which contrasted the revised 0.1% fall witnessed in January (previously reported: -0.2% month-on-month). The February rise mainly reflected higher prices for clothing and footwear as well as for recreation and culture, particularly package holidays. Annual headline inflation jumped from 2.4% in January to 3.0% in February, which represented the highest level since October 2008. The reading reflected higher prices for mineral oil products, in particular for fuels (+22.0% year-on-year) and heating oil (+30.0% yoy). Annual HICP inflation (based on harmonised index of consumer prices) rose from 2.5% in January to 3.1% in February, which marked the highest rate since September 2008. As a result, annual average HICP inflation stood at 2.0% in February. In its December economic outlook report, the Central Bank anticipates HICP inflation to average 2.2% this year. For 2012, monetary authorities expect inflation to average 1.8%.
