Inflation Galloping Ahead

Newly released Statistical Center of Iran’s figures show the Consumer Price Index registered a remarkable growth in the Iranian month of Mordad (July 22-Aug. 22). 
The monthly increase of 5.2% is unprecedented over the past decade while the fluctuations of prices pushed the year-on-year CPI growth to the alarming level of close to 20%, experienced in the fiscal 2012-13 and 2013-14.  
The overall CPI (using the Iranian year to March 2017 as the base year) stood at 127.7 for the month under review, indicating a 5.2% rise compared with the previous month. 
The index registered a year-on-year increase of 19.3% compared with the similar month of last year.
