Thai CPI Expands 3.41% in April as Power Bill Reduction Ends and Consumer Prices Rise

Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose to 100.48 in April, up 3.41% year-on-year, buoyed by rising price for swine as well as vegetables, and a demand for oil is ramping up globally. Moreover, government’s relief measures to reduce electricity tariff and water bills have already ended.

 

Average CPI for the first four months (Jan-Apr) surged 0.43%. 

 

Meanwhile, April’s Core CPI was at 100.56, increasing 0.30% compared to a year earlier, pushing the index for the first quarter of 2021 to grow by 0.16%.
