ANALYSTS have warned that the war in Iraq could push up inflation in Slovakia.
The cost of petrol makes up 12 per cent of total transport costs, and a long war could push inflation up by 0.8 percentage points, according to Unibanka analyst Viliam Pätoprstý.
However, he added that a short war could push the inflation rate up by just 0.2 percentage points.
