In March, the consumer price index (CPI) reached 123.4 points from 122.0 points in the same period last year, the report said. The restaurants and hotels group accounted for 40.6 per cent of the overall increase, as prices of items in this group rose 11.4 per cent. The second biggest contributor to the overall increase in the CPI was the transport group, which surged 2.8 per cent, accounting for 25.1 per cent of the overall increase in the period. The prices of food and beverages group contributed 16.7 per cent of the net change in consumer prices during the quarter. The surge in this group resulted from increases in the prices of vegetables, which rose 13.5 per cent, food products prices went up 3.8 per cent, coffee, tea and cocoa were expensive by 5.7 per cent year-on-year. Prices of milk, cheese and eggs also rose 0.7 per cent along with bread and cereals which climbed 1.5 per cent in March.
