The prices of selected consumer goods and services fell by 0.2 percent between February 11 and 20, the Slovak Statistics Office announced on March 2.

Conversely, fruit and fuel prices went up by 1.6 and 0.1 percent, respectively. The Statistics Office is conducting consumer price surveys of 196 frequently-purchased goods and services every ten days between August 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009, the TASR newswire wrote with the aim to monitor price developments related to adoption of the euro.
