Core consumer prices in May (the latest month for which data is available) declined 0.3% in month-on-month terms, contrasting April’s 1.0% jump.

Inflation edged up to 2.6% in June from 2.4% in May, marking the fastest increase since November 2012 and moving above the midpoint of the Central Bank’s target range of 2.5% plus or minus 1.0 percentage point. Price rises were particularly strong for food and services. For its part, core inflation in May remained stable at April’s 1.7%.
