Prices of most popular goods and services down 0.1% in late November

The prices of the most-frequently purchased goods and services fell by 0.1 percent in the final ten days of November, the Statistics Office announced on December 9. This development was mainly due to the price of fruit falling by 3.6 percent and those of fuels by 3.2 percent. Conversely, prices in the categories of other devices and personal-care items both went up by 2.3 percent, while those of vegetables rose by 3.7 percent.

The Statistics Office will conduct 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
