Dip in British shop prices relieves

In June, prices in UK shops went down at the slowest annual tempo since November 2013, as the British Retail Consortium informed on Wednesday, telling it actually expects soaring inflation pressure to prompt outright price leaps soon.

Overall shop prices inched down 0.3% year-on-year in June, unlike a 0.4% in May. As for te food price component, it grew 1.4%.

The Bank of England is currently monitoring gauges of inflation pressure in the British economy, as it considers whether to lift interest rates from their record minimum or not.

Cost pressures experienced by retailers keep mounting.

For the last four years the BRC price index has demonstrated a deflationary trend, provoked by supermarkets engaging in a price feud war and dipping global crude and food prices.
