Inflation in Spain falls to 0.1%, the lowest level in three years

Spain’s consumer price inflation hit the lowest in more than three years in September, according to data from the statistical office INE. The CPI edged up 0.1 percent year-on-year in September, following a 0.3 percent rise in August.

Inflation in Spain: Negative territory for 5 consecutive months

MADRID | The Corner | Spain’s final CPI in November was exactly the same as preliminary estimates: -0.4% yoy and -0.1% per month.

Throughout 2014, there were only three months with negative rates. Both the acceleration of the fall in oil prices and the stability of the dollar/euro explain these figures.
