Inflacja w styczniu 2024. Zaskakujące dane GUS

„GUS’s reading of inflation for January is lower than economists’ forecasts, who expected a decrease in the index to 4.1 percent. SEE: Inflation in Poland. New GUS data The data presented today by GUS is a preliminary reading. They are still calculated based on the so-called old inflation basket. The inflation basket is a compilation that shows the percentage share of individual goods and services in the total household expenditure. Inflation in Poland is falling. The latest GUS data shows that we have the lowest inflation since March 2021 (it was 3.2 percent), slightly higher in April 2021 (4.3 percent). The peak in this economic cycle, consumer inflation in Poland, was recorded in February 2023 at 18.4 percent, the highest since December 1996. In month-on-month terms, consumer prices rose by 0.4 percent in January 2024, in line with economists’ forecasts, but this represents an acceleration from the 0.1 percent recorded in December 2023. GUS also provided preliminary information on how prices evolved in individual categories. Food and non-alcoholic beverages increased by 4.9 percent year-on-year and 0.9 percent month-on-month. Alcoholic beverages and tobacco products cost 8.8 percent more year-on-year and 0.5 percent more month-on-month. Housing expenses cost Poles 2.3 percent more year-on-year and 0.8 percent more month-on-month (with energy carrier prices falling by 2.1 percent year-on-year, while rising by 0.4 percent month-on-month). Transport became cheaper by 4.4 percent year-on-year and 2.8 percent month-on-month (with fuel prices for private transport falling by 8.1 percent year-on-year and 2.3 percent month-on-month). Inflation in Poland. Predictions of the NBP President Experts expect the first quarter of this year to bring about a progressive de-inflation – this is the forecast of both the head of the National Bank of Poland, Adam Glapiński, and economists. In March, inflation should „brush against” the NBP target, which is 2.5 percent year-on-year with an allowable deviation range of 1 percentage point up and down. However, the dynamics of price growth will likely start to rise again – the scale of this rebound is still unknown, as it depends on administrative decisions: the possible reintroduction of the basic VAT rate on food (currently there is a „zero” VAT) and the method of phasing out the energy shield, which for many months has protected consumers from the effects of rising energy prices.
