AK inflation check: Alarming figures
The AK regularly surveys how prices are developing in energy, fuel, food, and housing – and the figures are alarming.
The current AK inflation check from 20 to 23 June 2022 at seven supermarkets and discounters (Billa, Billa Plus, Spar Interspar, Hofer Lidl, and Penny) shows: that low-priced toilet paper (1 roll/180 sheets, three-ply) still costs an average of 0.20 euros in June 2021, in June 2022 already 0.25 euros – that is an increase of 25 percent. For inexpensive handkerchiefs (100 pieces), stores were still charging 0.55 euros in June 2021 and 0.68 euros in June 2022 – that’s a price increase of almost 23 percent.

“It is also problematic that, in addition to the strong price increases, cheaper private labels are partly not available in the stores, and consumers have to resort to even more expensive products,” explains AK Konsument:innenschutzerin Gabriele Zgubic. “All the price increases add up, quite apart from the fact that higher prices hit people with low incomes much harder.”
