Consumer Price Jumps Before Chuseok, Citizens’ Worry Grows

 

Leading up to one of Korea’s two biggest holidays, Chuseok or Thanksgiving Day, the consumer price index is rising, causing concerns among citizens over the excessive cost of the holiday.

According to the Korea Agro-Fisheries and Food Trade Corporation and it’s regional distributional channel, the price of a 4 kilo package of lettuce was tallied at 16,000 won in Gwangju, up 15 percent in a one-month span.

Also, the price of a 4-kilogram bundle of spinach rose 60 percent to 12,000 won from 7,000 won a month ago.

In addition, due to hot weather and drought, the harvest of nappa cabbage has seen a drastic fall causing its price to double during a one-month span to 550 won for 1 kilogram of nappa cabbage.

Meanwhile, the price of apples in Gwangju was tallied at 90,000 won for a 15-kilogram box, up 20,000 won, year-on-year.

Overall, according to figures released by the Statistics Office, the actual consumer price index recently recorded the highest figures in 19 months.
