Analysts put Hungary July consumer price index at 3.5%
Analysts polled by Reuters estimate Hungary's year-on-year consumer price index was 3.5% in July, unchanged from June, Reuters said on Tuesday.
The Central Statistics Office (KSH) will publish July CPI on Thursday.
The analysts expect high food prices in the base period as well as lower prices for seasonal food and fuel to keep July inflation down.
In June, the headline figure was lower than expected as food prices dropped because of concerns over an outbreak of E.coli in Europe.
