More expensive services lead euro zone inflation rebound in January

More expensive services and industrial goods led a rebound in inflation in January after months of falling prices, offsetting the downward pull of cheaper energy, data showed on Tuesday.

Volatile energy prices were 3.8% higher on the month but still 4.2% lower than a year earlier and unprocessed food was 1.2% more expensive on the month and 2.0% year-on-year.Without these two volatile components, consumer prices fell 0.3% against December and were 1.4% higher than in January 2020.
