The av­er­age price rate in Latvia com­par­ing June 2016 to June 2017 has in­creased 3.0% as prod­ucts got 2.6% more ex­pen­sive, ser­vices – by 4.0%, cal­cu­lated the Lat­vian Cen­tral Sta­tis­ti­cal Bu­reau.

The statis­ti­cians found that com­pared to June 2016, last month the great­est pres­sure on the price changes was put by the rise in prices of food and non-al­co­holic bev­er­ages, goods and ser­vices re­lated to hous­ing, prices in mis­cel­la­neous goods and ser­vices group, prices re­lated to re­cre­ation and cul­ture, prices in com­mu­ni­ca­tion group, prices of goods and ser­vices re­lated to trans­port.

Mean­while, there has been a de­cline in prices of cloth­ing and footwear, as well as nat­u­ral gas.

Even though nat­u­ral gas last month cost cheaper than a year ago, prices of goods and ser­vices re­lated to hous­ing went up by 3.2 %, as the in­crease was seen in main­te­nance charges in multi-oc­cu­pied build­ings, prices of heat en­ergy and waste col­lec­tion.
