Consumer prices rose 0.60% in February over the previous month, picking up from the 0.31% increase seen in January. February's figure marked the sharpest increase in prices since March 2015. The uptick was mainly led by higher transportation and education prices. However, prices for food and alcoholic beverages decreased from the previous month.

Consumer prices decreased 0.6% in annual terms in February, a less pronounced drop than January’s 1.4% fall. The annual average variation of consumer prices was unchanged at January's minus 1.7% in February.

Our panelists project that consumer prices will end 2021 1.1% higher year-on-year, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. The panel sees consumer prices increasing 1.4% year-on-year at the end of 2022.
