Norway Inflation August 2023

Norway: Inflation drops to lowest level since March 2022 in August

Inflation came in at 4.8% in August, which was markedly below July’s 5.4%. August’s result represented the weakest inflation rate since March 2022. Despite the downtick, the reading still more than doubled Norges Bank’s 2.0% target. Looking at the details of the release, the moderation chiefly reflected prices for recreation and culture growing at a more subdued pace. In addition, prices for housing and utilities fell year on year.

Accordingly, the trend pointed down, with annual average inflation falling to 6.4% in August (July: 6.5%). Meanwhile, core inflation fell to 6.3% in August, from the previous month’s 6.4%.

Finally, consumer prices dropped 0.76% over the previous month in August, contrasting the 0.38% rise recorded in July. August’s result marked the weakest reading since January 2022.
