The main upward impacts on annual inflation were recorded in the Food Index (0.56 percentage points), the Beverages and Tobacco Index (0.27 percentage points) and the Recreation and Culture Index (0.27 percentage points). This was mainly due to higher prices of vegetables, cigarettes and entertainment and cultural visits respectively.
