– In June 2019, the inflation rate was 1.6% (May 2019 1.7%), as Statistics Austria
reports. Cheaper fuels were mainly responsible for the decrease of the
June inflation rate, while in May fuels became more expensive. Expenditures
for housing, water and energy (+3.1% compared to June 2018) proved to
be the most important price driver, followed by expenditures for restaurants
and hotels (+3.1%). The index level of the consumer price index 2015
(CPI 2015) was 106.8 in June. Compared to the previous month May, the
average price level increased by 0.1%.
The index level of the harmonised
index of consumer prices (HICP 2015)
was 107.11 in June 2019, (May 2019: 107.18 revised) with the harmonised
inflation rate amounting to 1.6%.
