Factbox-Turkey starts 2022 with flurry of price hikes after inflation surge

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

(Reuters) - After inflation surged to a 19-year high of 36.1% last month, Turkey has pushed through a series of price hikes at the start of the year which are set to add to cost pressures as Ankara pursues an unorthodox interest-rate cutting policy.

In December alone, consumer prices jumped 13.58%, official data showed on Monday, further eroding the earnings and savings of Turks hit by a currency crisis and resulting economic upheaval.

Despite the price pressure, the central bank slashed its key rate by 500 basis points to 14% since September, sending the lira down as much as 50% in that period alone.

As a result, import prices soared and set off what some economists called a "vicious cycle" in which the government responded by lifting minimum wage, taxes, utility tariffs and other prices.

Here are some of the price hikes that have been implemented:

WAGES AND PENSIONS

The government hiked the monthly minimum wage by 50% to 4,250 lira ($275.44) for 2022 and raised some related taxes on employers. President Tayyip Erdogan said civil servant salaries had been raised by 30.5% from January, and monthly pension payments would jump to 2,500 lira ($189) from 1,500.

POWER

The Energy Market Regulatory Authority, citing high global energy inflation, said electricity prices were raised by as much as 125% for high-demand commercial users and by around 50% for lower-demand households for 2022.

GAS

Natural gas prices jumped 25% for residential use and 50% for industrial use in January, national distributor BOTAS said. The monthly price rise was 15% for power generators.

PETROL

Petrol prices, frequently adjusted in line with international prices, rose by more than half a lira per litre, or around 5%, in the latest adjustment, while diesel prices increased by 1.29 liras, the Energy, Petroleum, Gas Stations Employers Union (EPGIS) said.

ROAD, BRIDGE TOLLS

The tolls for use of highways and bridges were raised by an average 25%.

RAILWAYS

Ticket prices for the Marmaray rail service through a tunnel underneath the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul rose by 36%. Turkish Railways raised ticket prices for its high-speed trains by some 20%.

CIGARETTES AND ALCOHOL

The special consumption tax on cigarettes and alcohol was raised by 47%, making cigarettes about 20% more expensive and lifting alcohol prices by around 20-33%.

GRAINS

Turkey's TMO state grain board announced price hikes of some 23-24% for wheat and barley to support farmers.

TAXI, BUS FARES

Fares for taxis in Istanbul went up by around one third from the start of the year. Bus fares in Istanbul rose by around 36%.

CAR INSURANCE

There was a 20% jump in mandatory vehicle insurance costs for those with the highest deductible, which will come into effect as of February.
