Croatia’s annual inflation rate rose for the third straight month to 3.3 percent in September of 2021, from 3.1 percent in the previous month. That was the highest rate since March of 2013, led by soaring prices of transport (10.8 percent vs 9.9 percent in August), largely on account of fuels & lubricants (21.6 percent) and passenger transport by air (39.3 percent). Additional upward pressure came from costs of alcoholic beverages & tobacco (5.6 percent vs 5.5 percent); restaurants & hotels (4.3 percent vs 4.4 percent); food & non-alcoholic beverages (2.9 percent vs 2.4 percent) and housing & utilities (2.4 percent vs 2 percent).
