Mexico continues to struggle with inflation, as it reached 6.44 percent this July, according to the country’s National Consumer Price Index, which is published by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography.

The new figures represent the highest inflation recorded since December 2008, when it reached 6.53 percent. Since last July, consumer prices have reached 2.65 percent, surpassing the Central Bank of Mexico’s target range of 3 +/- 1 percentage points.

Tomatoes (21.80 percent), green tomatoes (18.68 percent), tourist services (9.71 percent) and bananas (8.88 percent) were the products with the greatest price variation, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography.

“It exceeded our expectations based on a higher increase than was expected with regard to fruits and vegetables, which is why we never rule out any impact on the price of food products,” Alejandro J. Saldaña, an analyst at Ve Por Gás, said. “One unexpected factor, however, was that the holiday season generated greater pressure on prices for tourism as compared to those observed a year ago.”

The banking institution Banorte said July inflation occurred due to “pressures on agricultural prices as well as other services.”
