In January, the consumer price index in the national statistical office increased by 0.8 percent compared to the previous year.

When, in the last year, the Korean bank surveyed 2,500 households in the country, it was confirmed that consumer prices actually rose by 2.4 percent.

The difference between consumer price inflation and inflation in consumer prices was the highest in the year since January last year with 1.6 percentage points.

Inflation of consumer prices fell sharply from 2.0 percent in November to 0.8 percent in January, while actual inflation fell slightly from 2.5 percent in November last year to 2.4 percent in the previous month.

Consumer prices fell as a result of declining oil prices, but perceptions of prices by consumers remained unchanged.

In addition, the National Statistics Office's consumer price index is based on 460 items, which are only a few elements that consumers often buy.

Even if prices are lowered as a whole, consumers may feel that prices have risen as food and food costs that are close to life increase.

This year there is a possibility that the difference between land prices and the sense of appreciation will increase.

The Seoul taxi fare will rise from 16th, and local governments are also considering raising a city bus ticket.

In addition, if water and utility costs and premiums increase, the actual price that consumers actually feel may be higher.

If the gap between actual and actual inflation rates increases, this could have a negative impact on the economy as a whole.

Experts emphasize the need to reduce the gap between land prices and price increases by improving the system of distribution of agricultural products and reducing the prices of agricultural products.

So far, YTN Shin Yoon Jeong is the Ministry of Economy.
