Portugal - Harmonized Inflation

Inflation inches down in February

In February, consumer prices remained flat over the previous month, following the 0.6% increase recorded in January and were slightly below the 0.1% rise tallied in February 2011. As a result, annual inflation inched down to 3.5% in February (January: 3.6% year-on-year). The reading showed that lower prices for clothing and footwear were completely offset by higher energy costs. Meanwhile, annual core inflation, which excludes prices of unprocessed food and energy, decreased from 2.1% in January to 1.9% in February. Annual average HICP inflation (based on the harmonized index of consumer prices) rose for the 12th consecutive month, stepping up from 1.7% in January to 2.0% in February, which represented a two-year high.
