This year inflation rates are higher than in 2012, the Bashkortostan Statistics Agency informs. From the beginning of the year consumer prices grew by 1,9 percent in the republic. It is an average across Russia indicator. Food products rose in price by three percent, nonfoods by 1,2 percent, services — by 1,3 percent.
The March consumer price index made 100,3 percent. Thus the prices for food products increased by 0,4 percent, for nonfoods — by 0,6 percent, and services decreased in price by 0,2 percent.
During the first quarter statisticians fixed slowing-down of inflationary processes in the food segment and some acceleration — in the nonfood one.
In the Volga Federal District the consumer price index from the beginning of year varies from 101,5 percent in the Samara Region to 102,2 percent in the Kirov and Saratov Regions and Perm Territory.
