In October 2009, the consumer price index (CPI) increased by 0.1% after a decrease by 0.2% in September.
Adjusted for seasonal variations, the monthly change went up by 0.1% as well.
Year-on-year, prices continued to decline (-0.2%), for the sixth-consecutive month.
The price index without Tobacco increased also by 0.1% (-0.2% year-on-year).
This small rise of the CPI in October is due to the growth of the prices of fresh products and to the seasonnal increase of services, a bit more important than the decrease of the prices of manufacturing products and energy.
