Inflation: food once again casts a shadow over the floor sought by the Government

In thesecond week of June, food prices also average a monthly increase of 4.8%according to data from the consultancy Labor Capital and Growth (LCG) and, during that period, an increase of 1.5% was recorded compared to the previous seven days.

The data suggest that, taking into account the rate increases planned for this month by the Government, as is the case of electricity and gas, It will be more complicated if at the end of the month the Consumer Price Index (CPI) falls until it pierces its floor of 4.2%.

However, the economic team seems be aspiring to have a 2% monthly floorsomething that seems complicated given the delay in the price of public services, which generates repressed inflation.
