Producer inflation in Bulgaria quickened to a new record high of 32.6% year-on-year in January, from 30.8% in the previous month, mainly due to soaring prices of electricity, gas, steam & air conditioning supply (85.7%), the Sofia-based National Statistical Institute (NSI) said in a report.
Costs also advanced faster for manufacturing (17.1% vs 16.2%), but slowed for mining (3.9% vs 9.4%).
On a monthly basis, producer prices jumped by 3.2%, accelerating from a 1.7% rise in December.
