As expected, German CPI rose 0.5% on month in February after dropping 0.6% in January.
On year, inflation slipped to 1.2% from 1.3%.
HICP +0.5% on month vs -0.7% previously. On year, HICP +1% vs +1.2%.
All the figures were in line with consensus.
The comparably low inflation rate was again mainly due to a fall in prices for mineral oil products. Excluding those prices, inflation was +1.7%. (PR)
