Annual nonharmonized consumer prices rose 1.7% in July, up from the 1.6% increase recorded in June. Energy prices increased by 2.4% year over year, slowing from the 2.5% growth recorded in June.

Food prices increased by 2.1% annually, while prices of housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels rose 1.9%. Transport prices advanced 1.7%, while education prices fell 2.1%.

On a monthly basis, nonharmonized consumer price growth accelerated to 0.5% in July from a 0.3% increase in June.
