Prices down in August

AFTER a long period of rising prices inflation recorded a decrease in August falling 0.1 percent month-on-month.

Analysts were particularly surprised by the relatively dramatic decrease of food prices, which plunged one percent, SME daily wrote.

"After entering the EU, food prices recorded a strong growing trend but August brought a surprising turn. A good harvest this year could also attenuate the price growth in the remaining months of the year," said ING Bank economist, Ján Tóth.
