Romania: Inflation inches down in September

October 10, 2018

Consumer prices rose 0.5% over the previous month in September, following August’s softer 0.3% increase. Higher prices for food, non-food goods and for services drove the result, with prices for food goods growing the most. Vegetables and fuels recorded the strongest increases in prices, while fruit and tinned fruit recorded the largest decrease.

Inflation dipped from August’s 5.1% to 5.0% in September and thus remained above the Central Bank’s target range of 1.5%–3.5%, where it has been for nine consecutive months. Meanwhile, annual average inflation rose from 4.2% in August to 4.5% in September, the highest level since October 2013.
