Finance Minister presents framework budget to 2009, Flash News Briefs, March 13 - March 19, 2006
A media stunt, Oscar. Inflation didn't rise significantly, and the few examples you mention can always be found if you look hard enough. I am sure you could also find examples to the opposite, but bad news grabs more headlines. Most retailers did round up to the nearest number, of course, but prices were rising anyway. It was just the logical time to adjust prices to the right level and, at the same time, put a realistic number on the price tag. That accounts for the 0,5 percent rise in inflation, if there really was any due to euro-introduction. The rest is just an interesting story that would probably not be blamed on the Euro if the other way around.
