Mexico: Inflation continues to rise on higher agricultural prices

August 9, 2012

In July, consumer prices added 0.56% over the preceding month, which came in above the 0.46% rise seen in June but in line with market expectations. The strong price increase was underpinned by higher non-core prices, in particular for agricultural products, which rose 2.99% over June. In contrast, core prices added a more subdued 0.31%. Building on the strong monthly price increase, annual inflation rose for a third month in a row, climbing from 4.3% in June to 4.4% in July. Annual core inflation - which excludes food and energy prices - followed suit and inched up to 3.6% in July. In its latest inflation report from May, the Central Bank expects inflation to fall back to between 3.0% and 4.0% by the end of this year and to remain within the same range by the end of 2013
