Guatemala - Inflation

Inflation moderates strongly in December

Consumer prices increased 0.13% over the previous month in December, contrasting the 0.29% decrease in November. The result chiefly came on the tails of marked price increases for food and recreation, which offset significantly cheaper prices for transportation.

Inflation, meanwhile, moderated strongly from 3.2% in November to 2.3% in December, moving below the Central Bank’s 3.0%–5.0% target range.
