Estonia's consumer prices rose in October, data from Statistics Estonia (SE) showed on Friday.
The consumer price index (CPI) rose 7.0% year-on-year in October, following a 6.6% growth in September.
"Compared to October 2020, the consumer price index was affected the most by transport-related price changes, which contributed slightly over a third of the total rise in the index," Viktoria Trasanov, leading analyst at the statistics agency, said.
Prices for petrol increased 25.5% and diesel prices rose 40.4%. On a monthly basis, consumer prices declined 0.2% in October, after a 1.2% rise in the previous month.
