MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s annual inflation rate accelerated slightly in the first half of July, thanks to higher prices of energy and some food items, a Reuters poll showed.
The 11 experts forecast annual inflation of 3.58% for the first two weeks of July, below the 3.50% in the last two weeks of June.
During those two weeks in July, consumer prices would have risen by 0.32% while the core index would have risen by 0.13%, according to the poll.
Their estimate for yearly core inflation was 3.73%.
Mexico’s national statistics institute will publish its national consumer price index for the first half of July on Thursday.
