Anhui’s consumer price index (CPI), the main gauge of inflation, rose 1.2 percent year on year in May, up by 0.1 percentage points from a month earlier, data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed on Tuesday.

Statistics also showed the eastern Chinese province’s CPI edged up 0.1 percent month on month in May.

Food prices dropped by 0.1 percent month on month. Pork prices decreased by 4.5 percent, vegetable prices by 6.7 percent and prices of aquatic products by 2.4 percent, collectively resulting in a 0.32 percentage points drop in the CPI. Fruit prices, on the contrary, rose 19.3 percent over a month ago, contributing to a rise of 0.3 percentage points in the price index.

On a yearly basis, pork prices fell 19.7 percent in May, a 16th consecutive month decline. Prices of fruits and aquatic products went down by 8.5 percent and 5.9 percent, respectively. The above three generated a 0.8 percentage points drop in the CPI.

Prices of plane tickets came down by 8.7 percent, and costs of travelling dropped 1.5 percent, due to a shrinkage of market demand after the May Day holiday.
