Congress Index: Inflation hits 1.9% in August
Opposition lawmakers presented August’s inflation index based in the analysis of nine private agencies, which showed a 1.9 percent increase against the previous month.
The head of the Radical Party at the Lower House of Congress announced that the inflation index is three times higher than the one reported by the Indec national statistics bureau.
Along with Lawmakers Patricia Bullrich and Paula Bertol, Gil Lavedra also denounced "censorship" of the private agencies to publish their prices index.
The lawmakers also stated that the inflation had hit 24.23 percent year-on-year.
