Inflation surges on food prices


With the Lunar New Year holidays fast approaching, shoppers stock up on groceries at a large discount store in Yangjae-dong, southern Seoul, on Feb. 1. Consumer prices rose by 4.1 percent in January due to a shortage of agricultural goods caused by the recent cold spell, the foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) epidemic and a rise in international oil prices.
