Lithuania's consumer price inflation eased further in June to reach its lowest level in more than one-and-a-half year, figures from the Vilnius-based Statistics Lithuania (LS) showed on Tuesday.
The consumer price index (CPI) climbed 9.0% year-on-year in June, slower than the 11.7% surge in May.
The overall inflation was largely driven by a 17.6% rise in utility costs, though slower than the 22.2% jump in the prior month.
Prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages also grew notably by 14.4%, while transport costs dropped by 8.3%.
On a monthly comparison basis, consumer prices edged down 0.1% in June versus a 0.2% fall in May.
