THE Balearics was the region with the biggest price increases in June, two decimal points above the national average, attributed to a 1.9 per cent rise in hotel, cafe and restaurant prices as the high season for tourism gets under way. Other major increases were food and non-alcoholic beverages (up by 0.6 per cent) and leisure and culture, also up by 0.6 per cent.
Footwear and clothing prices went down by 0.4 per cent, transport by 0.3 per cent despite the rise in the cost of crude oil, and communications by 0.1 per cent. Inflation so far this year is running at 2.4 per cent, one decimal point more than the national average.
