In monthly terms prices went up by 0.5 percent.

The overall increase in prices was again largely due to rising prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages, which rose by 6.5 percent year-on-year. The prices of housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels increased by 6.2 percent from April 2010, closely followed by transport prices by 6.1 percent, TASR wrote. Clothing and footwear prices rose for the first time in two years – by 1.5 percent on the year.
