Prices rise two tenths again to 5.6% and remain at 29-year highs
Food and fuel prices have risen the most
BarcelonaThe Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose again in November in relation to the previous month and placed the annual rate at 5.6%, two tenths more than in October and the highest level in 29 years, due to the rise in the price of food and, to a lesser extent, fuel.
With the November figure, the highest since September 1992, the year-on-year CPI registers its eleventh consecutive positive rate, according to advanced data released on Monday by the National Statistics Institute (INE).
The year-on-year performance of the CPI highlights the rise in food prices and fuel for private vehicles, in contrast to the declines experienced in November 2020.
