During the monitoring of prices on the market of socially important food products, a decrease in prices for potatoes, both fresh and old, was noted. Chief specialist-expert of the Nizhny Novgorod OFAS Ilya Baranov told reporters about this at a regular press conference.
As of September 26, the price for fresh potatoes was 20 rubles, which is 10 rubles less than the price shown by the monitoring on August 10. The price reduction was over 31%.
Old potatoes cost 26,5 rubles instead of 20,5 rubles. The price decrease was 22,26%.
Since August 10 of this year, white cabbage has become cheaper - the price tag for it has dropped by about five rubles. However, as in the case of fresh potatoes, the figures recorded a year ago are significantly lower than the current ones. Cabbage has risen in price by 80% over the year, and potatoes - by 48%.
