The The Consumer Price Index (CPI) of Spain has fallen five tenths in the preliminary reading for November, standing at 6.8% from 7.3% in October, its lowest level in the last ten months. The result improves market forecasts, which expected a rise to 7.4%.

This evolution is mainly due to the drop in fuel prices, which rose in November 2021, and electricity, with a greater decrease than last year. It also influences, although to a lesser extent, the increase in the prices of the new season of clothing and footwear, more moderate than in 2021, according to the National Institute of Statistics (INE).
