Euro zone: inflation fell to 9.2% in December

Consumer price inflation fell below the symbolic 10% mark for the first time since October.

The annual inflation rate in the euro zone fell in December for the second consecutive month, to 9.2%, after 10.1% in November, thanks to the continued lull in energy prices, announced Eurostat on Friday.

The rise in consumer prices fell below the symbolic bar of 10% for the first time since October, when it had reached a record, at 10.6%, after a year and a half of uninterrupted rise.
