Eurowallet: Price of selected goods and services decreased by 0.7%

The price of selected goods and services decreased by 0.7 percent in the last 10 days of October compared to the previous 10-day period, the Slovak Statistics Office reported on November 10. Price developments were, according to analysts, influenced mainly by a 4-percent decrease in fuel prices (4.1 percent when calculated in euros), and also by a 2.2-percent fall in the price of oils and fats. Conversely, the price of sugar, jam, honey, concentrated soft drinks, chocolate and sweets increased by 0.4 percent, and cheese and eggs went up 0.5 percent. The Statistics Office began monitoring prices in 10-day periods on August 1, and this method will be in place until June 30, 2009. The goal of this monitoring is to record consumer price developments both in Slovak korunas and euro during the dual display of prices. TASR
