Italy’s inflation rate reaches 6.8%, the highest level since 1990

Rome, June 17: According to data released by the National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT), the Italian consumer price index reached a record high of 6.8% year-on-year in May, the highest since 1990.

Xinhua News Agency said both the war in Ukraine and the slowdown in international trade contributed to the upward trend in prices. As interest rates rise, global markets plunge again, raising concerns about recession

Thursday’s price data was slightly below the 6.9% tentative estimate.

However, it was still the highest year-on-year increase in Italy since the creation of the euro currency, the sharpest rise since the 1990s.

According to ISTAT, monthly inflation in May was 0.8%.

Energy products caused the largest price increases, up 42.6 percent over the previous year.

General goods prices rose 9.7% in May, primarily due to higher manufacturing and transportation costs, with service prices rising 3.1%.
