Slovenia: Decline in consumer prices continues in September
September 30, 2014
Consumer prices rose 0.3% in September over the previous month, which followed the flat reading tallied in August. The monthly reading mostly reflected a sharp increase in prices for clothing and footwear and, to a lesser extent, for food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Annual consumer prices fell 0.3% in September, which matched the result observed in August. Consequently, the print represented the lowest rate since July 2009. Meanwhile, annual harmonized consumer prices fell from a flat reading in August to a 0.1% decline in September, which represented the lowest print since July 2009. Annual average HICP inflation ticked down from August’s 0.8% to 0.6% in September, which marked yet another all-time record low.
