“Inflation stood at 2.5 percent in March for the third consecutive month,” Statistics Netherlands said in a statement Prices rose 1.1 percent from February.

Energy prices continued to be the main driver of inflation, up 8.6 percent over the year, although they were stable over the month. Modest increases in food prices, up 1.8 percent over the year, helped keep overall inflation down.
