The price of the most-frequently purchased goods and services fell by 0.4 percent in the first ten days of September, the Statistics Office announced on September 18.
This development was mainly due to the price of fruit falling by 4 percent and that of vegetables dropping by 2 percent.
Conversely, the price of sugar, jam, honey, concentrated soft drinks, chocolate and sweets increased by 1 percent, while those in the categories of other devices and personal-care items rose by 0.6 percent.
The Statistics Office is conducting consumer-price surveys of 196 frequently-purchased goods and services every ten days between August 1, 2008-June 30, 2009. The aim is to monitor price developments in the run-up to euro adoption and beyond. TASR
