September 14, 2017
In August, consumer prices fell 0.1% from the previous month, which contrasted July’s 0.2% increase. August’s fall was largely driven by lower prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Inflation rose from July’s 15.9% to 16.2% in August, the highest reading since March 2016. Annual average inflation followed suit, rising from 12.7% in July to 13.3% in August.
