French inflation rose at its slowest pace in four months in September as prices for energy and services eased, according to new data from the French Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies.
The preliminary reading of annualized EU-harmonized consumer price inflation in France was 6.2%, down from 6.6% in August. Economists had expected 6.7%.
This is the lowest growth rate since May, when prices rose 5.8%.
Month-on-month, prices fell 0.5%, the first such decline since September 2021.
