In 2022, the average inflation reached a level of 12.8%

The high price increases were mainly influenced by the rise in energy prices and the record increases in food and fuel prices in the recent history of the Slovak Republic. The increase in prices of selected foods for daily consumption - bread, dairy products, eggs, as well as vegetables - exceeded 20%, and oils and fats, which are less important by weight, exceeded 40%.
