Slovenia: Decline in consumer prices eases in October
October 30, 2014
Consumer prices rose 0.2% in October over the previous month, which followed the 0.3% increase tallied in September. The monthly reading mostly reflected a sharp increase in prices for clothing and footwear due to the impact of the arrival of new collections.
Annual consumer prices fell 0.2% in October, which was a notch above the 0.3% drop tallied in September. Meanwhile, annual harmonized consumer prices rebounded from a 0.1% drop in September to a 0.1% increase in October. Annual average HICP inflation ticked down from September’s 0.6% to 0.5% in October, which marked yet another all-time record low.
