Gasoline prices have risen since spring : The price of diesel has increased by 17.8% and 95-octane gasoline by almost 9% since spring, due to the rising oil prices driven by factors such as production restrictions and strong demand, particularly in Asia. Analysts predict that the oil price and gasoline price may continue to rise next year, influenced by OPEC and Russia's power position in the world market.
Food prices rise : Food prices in retail have seen a slight increase of 0.2 percent in July after three months of stability or decrease. The rise is attributed to upward pressure and tight profitability among suppliers, as well as the impact of the weak krona and increased import costs. The survey shows that 20% of products increased in price, while only 9% became cheaper.
Summer travel soars : Over 3.2 million passengers flew through Swedavia airports in July, marking a 14% increase compared to the same month last year. Despite concerns about climate change and inflation, Scandinavians continue to travel to Mediterranean countries during summer, driven by their desire for warmer climates. The weak Swedish and Norwegian currencies also attracted international tourists.
