Uruguay: August inflation above government targets

Late last week, Uruguay's National Statistics Institute (INE) issued its monthly report according to which the country's Consumer Price Index for August 2021 showed a 0.85% increase. This data place y-o-y rates at 7.59%, still above the government's target. In the first eight months of the year, inflation climbed 6.19% for a yearly projection over the government's plans of between 3% and 7%.

Fruits did go down -0.43% due to a drop in the prices of oranges (-5.83%) and strawberries (-14.28%), but they were compensated by an increase in the price of bananas (4.02%) and pears (9.16%). Legumes and vegetables also reported their ups and downs: Tomatoes went down (-12.43%) as did carrots (-8.87%) and peppers (-11.15%), but zucchini went up (12.46%).
