Latvia's consumer price inflation increased in June, preliminary data from the Riga-based Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) showed Thursday.
The consumer price index (CPI) rose 2.7% year-on-year in June, following a 2.6% increase in May.
In June, inflation was mainly influenced by the rise in prices of goods and services related to transport, food and non-alcoholic beverages, clothing and footwear, alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, recreation and culture, and health care.
Transport cost increased 8.3% and health cost rose 2.8%. Prices in the food and non-alcoholic beverages group increased 2.0% and those of clothing and footwear prices rose 4%. On a monthly basis, prices increased 0.3% in June, following a 0.2% rise in the previous month.
