Inflation eased to 7.2% in January

In January, inflation reached 7.2%, with a slight decrease compared to December, when the indicator was 7.4%.

Inflation remains high, especially in food, 13.3% more expensive than last January.

The biggest impact on this group comes from the increase in the price of meat, milk and dairy products.

Other items such as clothing, furniture, bars, restaurants, hotels, entertainment and other services also continue to keep the overall price level above healthy inflation, which should not be above 3%.
