It is reported by REN TV with reference to the calculations of the statistical office of the European Union (Eurostat).
“Eurostat called such a price increase “huge”", - the report says.
The consumers of Hungary, Lithuania, Estonia and Slovakia felt the price change especially strongly.
Bread and other foodstuffs in the EU are becoming more expensive following the increase in energy prices. In September, gas prices in Europe rose by 30%.
Thus, the market reacted to the energy crisis that broke out in the world after the start of the military operation of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine and the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions.
Some manufacturers could not stand the rise in utility prices and announced the forced closure of production. In a number of countries, mass street demonstrations of citizens against rising prices began.
