March 1, 2017
Consumer prices increased 1.0% in February from the previous month, which contrasted January’s 0.6% decrease. The increase mainly reflected higher prices for petroleum products and food.
Inflation jumped to 2.2% in February, from 1.3% in January and marked the highest reading since August 2013. Meanwhile, harmonized inflation was 2.5% in February, which was above January’s 1.6% reading. The annual average variation in harmonized consumer prices increased from January’s flat reading to 0.3% in February.
