Lithuanian inflation was the slowest in seven months in October as clothing and communications costs fell.
Consumer prices increased 4.2 percent from a year earlier, the slowest pace since March, from 4.5 percent in September, the Vilnius-based statistics office said in an e-mailed statement today. The median estimate of four economists in a Bloomberg survey was 4.4 percent. Prices grew 0.1 percent from the previous month.
Clothing prices fell 0.2 percent while costs of communications dropped 0.7 percent.
