Bulgaria: Consumer prices fall for nine consecutive months

May 13, 2014

In April, consumer prices rose 0.30% over the previous month, which contrasted the 0.23% drop tallied in March and marked the highest increase in six months. According to the National Statistical Institute, the figure was mainly driven by higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages as well as for clothing and footwear.

Consumer prices fell 1.6% over the same month last year in April, which followed the 2.3% decline tallied in the previous month and marked the slowest fall in four months. April's figure marked the ninth consecutive drop in consumer prices. Annual average inflation fell from minus 0.6% in March to minus 0.9% in April.
