So we are facing a price rising again. Gases, electricity, food and even bank interests are getting more expensive. The oil price is growing both in the world and in Romania. And it is effecting on the prices of all the other services and products. The new first car matriculation fee is in force starting today too.
Gases are now 12, 5% more expensive on an average and in they are likely to reach even higher in October. (...)
Electricity cost 5, 3% more on an average and home consumers will pay 4, 4% more that the current price.
And we are sure to pay more on cigarettes and food. But the price of food is estimated to reach lower than the new costs of gases and electricity, "about a half" of the latter's level.
Bread producers are expected to sell more expensive products next autumn, since processors are starting to use wheat from the new harvest, which should normally cost less.
The National Bank of Romania has increased the monetary policy interest to 10%, proceeding to the 6th increase this year. It is of great significance because it is depending on this interest that banks settle their own interests. And Romanian banks are therefore sure to increase loan interests. (G.M.)
