The data, which will not be confirmed until mid-October, and may suffer slight upward or downward variations, exceeds by almost one point - nine tenths - the August data, when prices rose to 2.6% due to the rise in the gasoline price, although in this case it lowered the electricity bill, while now electricity prices are increasing when they fell in September 2022.
The price of electricity is still far from its historical highs, but it falls less than last year, which puts upward pressure on the CPI. With September, inflation rises for the third consecutive time.
The underlying inflation rate - which does not take into account in the statistics the most volatile variation in the price of unprocessed food and energy products - moderates by three tenths to 5.8%, 2.3 points away from the general CPI .
IN an inter-monthly rate -September compared to August- prices rose 0.2%, three tenths less compared to the previous data, their fourth consecutive increase. In the case of the underlying, the month-on-month index falls to -01%.
The annual variation of the leading indicator of harmonized inflation (HICP), which is used to compile international statistics, mainly Eurostat, is 3.2%, eight tenths more than the previous figure.
