Prices went up 5.7% in April and May

TODAY VENEZUELA – Inflation in January-May hit 23%, according to the figures of the Central Bank of Venezuela. This is the highest increase during such period since 1996, even though the government of Nicolás Maduro keeps price regulations in place for a large number of goods and services.

In January-May, the price of food and non-alcoholic beverages soared 29.6%; household goods 13.4%; apparel and footwear 15.2%; and health care 17.8%.

Meanwhile, the central bank reckons inflation is not economically driven. In its report, it states, “April-May were affected by political conflicts taking place in several main cities of the country, which somehow compromised production, distribution, and trade of consumption goods and services.”
