Both on a monthly and on a yearly basis, the results were below the median of the expectations, of +0.36% and +2.94%, respectively.

In the year, the Food and Beverage group made the biggest contribution to the deceleration of inflation, with a drop of 2.15%, followed by the Articles of Residence group (-1.51%).

According to the IBGE, the increase of 2.75% in the price of gasoline between November and December was one of the factors that contributed most to the increase in the previous inflation data.
