French Consumer Prices Index (CPI) recovered by 0.5% over a month

Over a month, the rebound in prices resulted from that, seasonal, of manufactured product prices, and also from an upturn in energy prices. Contrariwise, services prices slowed down sharply due to a seasonal downturn in airfares and a slowdown in those of accommodation services. Food prices were stable.
