Spain’s annual inflation decelerated to 8.3 percent in April of 2022 from a near 40-year high of 9.8 percent in March and below preliminary estimates of an 8.4 percent increase. Lower inflationary pressure was mainly due to eased commodity prices following the shock of the war in Ukraine and restored supply chains as Spain's trucker strike lost momentum. Prices rose at a slower rate for housing and utilities (18.8 percent vs 33.1 percent in March) and transportation (12.8 percent vs 18.6 percent). On the other hand, costs accelerated for food and non-alcoholic beverages (10.1 percent vs 6.8 percent), restaurant and hotels (5.8 percent vs 4.4 percent), and leisure and culture (2.9 percent vs 1.2 percent). The annual core rate, which excludes food and energy products rose to 4.4 percent in April, the highest since 1995, from 3.3 percent in March. On a monthly basis, consumer prices fell by 0.2 percent, compared to a 3 percent jump in the previous period. source: National Statistics Institute (INE)

Spain Inflation Rate Slows More than Expected in April
Spain’s annual inflation rate likely decelerated to 8.4 percent in April of 2022, from a near 40-year high of 9.8 percent in March and well below market expectations of 9 percent, preliminary estimates showed. That would be the first slowdown in inflation since January mainly due to an ease in fuel and electricity prices. However, core inflation, which excludes volatile items such as unprocessed food and energy products, is seen rising to 4.4 percent in March from 3.4 percent, the highest since December 1995 amid higher food and beverage costs. On a monthly basis, consumer prices are expected to decrease 0.1 percent, after a 3 percent jump in March.
