Annual inflation rate in Germany slowed more than expected to 7.6% in June of 2022 from 7.9% in May which was the highest reading since German reunification, preliminary estimates showed. Figures compare with market forecasts of 8%, as government measures introduced from June 1st to dampen high fuel prices, including tax cuts on gasoline and diesel started to take effect. Energy prices increased 38%, slightly less than 38.3% in May while cost of food rose at a faster 12.7% vs 11.1% in the previous month. On a month-over-month basis, consumer prices edged up 0.1%, the lowest in seven months. EU harmonised rates also slowed, with the annual one falling to 8.2% from 8.7% and the monthly one falling to -0.1%, the first decline in the CPI since November of 2020. June figures for Germany raised hopes that inflation had finally peaked and would soon start slowing across Euro Area countries. source: Federal Statistical Office

German Inflation Rate Confirmed at 7.9% in May
The annual inflation rate in Germany was confirmed at 7.9% in May of 2022, and accelerating from 7.4% in the previous month. It was the third straight month of record high inflation since German reunification and also marking the highest level since the winter of 1973/1974, mainly driven by faster rises in prices of energy (38.3% vs 35.3%), and food (11.1% vs 8.6%), which was the highest rate since at least 1992. The prices of energy products increased sharply, especially for heating oil (94.8%), motor fuels (41.0%), and natural gas (55.2%), reflecting the impact of Russia’ invasion on Ukraine. Meanwhile, cost of services continued to rise (2.9 percent vs 3.2 percent), led by a 1.7% gain in rent prices. On a monthly basis, consumer prices climbed 0.9 percent, accelerating slightly from a 0.8 percent growth in April. The CPI, harmonized to compare with other European countries, was up 8.7 percent on the year and rose 1.1 percent month-on-month.
