Guatemala: Inflation climbs higher in April

Consumer prices increased 0.60% over the previous month in April, contrasting the 0.04% decrease registered in March. The jump was largely driven by a sharp rise in transportation costs and a rebound in the prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages, while lower prices for communication partly offset price gains.

Inflation rose to an over one-year high of 4.8% in April from 4.2% in March, moving closer to the upper limit of the Central Bank’s 3.0%–5.0% target range. Meanwhile, annual average inflation inched up to 3.8% in April from 3.7% in March.
