June 14, 2019
Consumer prices rose a soft 0.1% from the previous month in May, following April’s 0.5% increase. According to the Statistical Institute, May’s outturn largely reflected higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages, and transport.
Inflation edged down to 3.5% in May from 3.7% in April, which had marked a six-month high. Meanwhile, annual average inflation ticked up to 3.4% in May from 3.3% in the prior month.
