That’s now five months running that annual inflation in Spain has been on the decline, since peaking at 10.8% in July. The drop is surely still largely to do with falling energy prices, with milder weather conditions so far this winter being a key reason for that in Europe. If there is something to take away from this report, it is that other countries in the euro area are likely to see a similar trend.
