During the reporting month, wheat grain retail price increased from the last month. Analysts are close following the situation, as the increases from third to fourth week of April were remarkably high. Northern and Central highlands provinces are the most affected. Inter-month comparison does not show the severity of changes.
Wheat flour prices also increased to 58 % above pre-crisis level. All cereals together are 39% higher than the pre-crisis levels. The difference between wheat and wheat flour prices is worrisome.
Cooking oil price increased by 40% in April 2011 when compared to the same time one year ago.
