Year-on-year, prices rose at a slower pace for housing and utilities (0.9 percent compared to 1.1 percent in May); transport (0.8 percent compared to 1.3 percent) and restaurants and hotels (0.4 percent compared to 0.7 percent) and fell for food and non-alcoholic beverages (-0.6 percent compared to 0.7 percent) and health (-0.7 percent, the same as in May). On the other hand, inflation rose for recreation and culture (0.9 percent from 0.8 percent).
On a monthly basis, consumer prices edged down 0.1 percent, after rising 0.2 percent in each of the previous three months and compared to expectations of a flat reading. Main downward pressure came from declines in cost of fruits and airfares. In contrast, prices rose for package tours and vegetables.
