Berlin / Potsdam (dpa / bb) – Thanks to low mineral oil prices, Berliners were able to save a little in November. Consumer prices fell by 0.5 percent this month on average compared to October. This means that prices in Berlin fell for the third month in a row, albeit only slightly, as the Berlin-Brandenburg Statistics Office announced on Monday. “The main reason for this was again the significantly lower prices for heating oil as well as for fuels compared to the previous year,” it said.
In return, consumers had to lie down more for food than in October: Prices in the capital rose by 1.7 percent. Clothes and shoes, on the other hand, were 0.7 percent cheaper than in the previous month.
