“Solid fuels were 111.4%, gas 88.8%, electricity that reached homes 83.7%, and heat energy 49.1% more expensive. The price changes of food and non-alcoholic beverages accounted for nearly 30% of the total rise in the index. Petrol was 21.9% and diesel fuel 42.6% more expensive,” explained Viktoria Trasanov, a leading analyst at Statistics Estonia.
