National methodology put inflation at 3.3 percent on an annual basis in February, the TASR newswire wrote. The rise was mainly fuelled by the increasing prices of food and alcohol-free beverages, which saw an annual mark-up of 6.5 percent in February. The prices of housing, water, power and fuels, went up by 6 percent on an annual basis.
