Israel Inflation August 2018

Israel: Inflation remains within the Central Bank’s target range in August

In August, consumer prices edged up 0.1% over the previous month, contrasting July’s flat reading. The result came on the back of higher prices for culture and entertainment negating the effects of lower prices for fresh vegetables and fruit, clothing and footwear, and communication.

Inflation moderated from 1.4% in July to 1.2% in August, although it remained within the Bank of Israel’s 1.0%–3.0% target range for the third consecutive month. Annual average inflation inched up to 0.5% in August from 0.4% in July.

Lastly, core inflation—which excludes volatile energy prices—edged down to 0.9% in August from July’s 1.0%.
