Estonia's consumer price index (CPI) rose 3.8% year-on-year in June, after a 3.6% rise in May, according to data released by the Tallinn-based Statistics Estonia (SE).
The latest inflation was mainly due to higher prices of motor fuels. Diesel fuel prices grew 21.4% and petrol prices rose by 19.1%. "An increase of 31.4% in the price of electricity that reached homes also had a bigger impact on the index change," Viktoria Trasanov, leading analyst at SE, said.
On a monthly basis, consumer prices gained 1.2% in June, following a 0.9% rise in the previous month.
