Sweden: Highest Inflation Since the 1990s


STOCKHOLM, April 14 (Reuters) - Headline inflation hit its highest level in more than three decades in March as the war in Ukraine pushed up food and fuel prices, data showed on Thursday.

Consumer prices in Sweden, measured with a fixed interest rate, rose 1.7 percent in March from the previous month and were up 6.1 percent from the same month last year, the statistics office (SCB) said on Thursday.

The headline figure was the highest since December 1991 while inflation, excluding volatile energy prices, at 4.1%, matched a figure from December 1993.
