Spanish Inflation Rate Up to 8-Month High


Spanish annual inflation rate is expected to accelerate to 0.4 percent in April of 2014, up by 0.5 percentage point from a negative 0.1 percent inflation in March.

The uptick in annual consumer prices is mainly due to a rise in cost of tourist services during the Easter week and to stable electricity, fuel and lubricant prices, following last year’s fall. 

From March to April, prices are expected to increase 0.9 percent.

EU-harmonized consumer prices rose 0.3 percent year-on-year and 0.6 percent on a monthly basis.
