Lithuania: Inflation rises in March
April 9, 2019
Consumer prices increased 0.9% from the previous month in March, up from the 0.1% month-on-month increase in February. The reading largely reflected higher prices for clothing and footwear, and food and non-alcoholic beverages, which more than offset lower prices for household equipment and communication.
Meanwhile, inflation rose to 2.6% in March, from 2.1% in February. In addition, annual average inflation was unchanged at February’s 2.4%, while harmonized inflation increased from 2.0% in February to 2.6% in March.
