After the nationwide expiry of the tank discount and 9-euro ticket at the end of August, the inflation rate in Rhineland-Palatinate rose sharply in September.

In September it was 9.8 percent above the level of the same month last year, as reported by the State Statistical Office in Bad Ems on Thursday.

In August, the inflation rate was still 8.0 percent.

Bad Ems - Above all, rising energy prices are driving up inflation during the Ukraine war.

According to the statisticians, energy was 41.8 percent more expensive in September in Rhineland-Palatinate than a year earlier.

The prices for gas increased by 64.5 percent, for heating oil by as much as 92 percent and for fuel by 27.2 percent.

Electricity prices increased by 21.3 percent.

Without including energy prices, the annual inflation rate would have been 5.9 percent.

Food in September in Rhineland-Palatinate cost 18 percent more than in the same month last year.

"The price increase for sunflower oil, rapeseed oil or similar was particularly strong (plus 117.3 percent)," the State Statistical Office said.

The lowest growth in food was in fruit with an increase of 4.9 percent.

Overall, the statisticians observed falling prices in hardly any area, only in the "Post and Telecommunications Department" did they register a slight minus of 0.4 percent.
