Slovenia: Inflation reaches highest level in four months in May
May 30, 2014
Consumer prices rose 0.6% over the previous month in May, which followed the 0.5% increase tallied in April. The increase primarily reflects higher prices for alcoholic beverages and tobacco as well as for clothing and footwear.
Annual headline inflation rose from 0.4% in April to 0.7% in May, which marked the highest level thus far this year. Meanwhile, annual HICP inflation (based on the harmonized index of consumer prices) rose from 0.5% in April to 1.0% in May. Annual average HICP inflation held steady at the previous month’s 1.3% in May, which marked the lowest level since May 2010.
