Inflation rise for August

Inflation on Island rose last month, according to the latest figures from the government.

The figure, measured by the Consumer Prices Index was up from 2.1 per cent to 2.5 per cent.

The Cabinet Office says rises in the price of internet subscriptions were primarily to blame for the jump.

Over the past 12 months, the data shows the price of household equipment and cheese have also risen.
