Easter to be much dearer this year - consumers

Home dinner +6%, eating out +5%, transport +22

(ANSA) - ROME, APR 13 - Easter will be much dearer this year due to eye-watering cost of living hikes on all expenses linked to the festivities, consumer group Assoutenti said Wednesday.
    A home-cooked Easter dinner will cost an average 6% more than last year after twin-figure hikes in many ingredients, said the association.
    It won't go much better for those hitting the restaurant for their Easter lunch, with menu hikes forecast to be an average 5%.
    And travelling by car will be another bigger drain on household finances this year, Assoutenti said, with petrol 12.2% up on average and diesel a whopping 22.7% dearer than last Easter.
    Other consumer groups have said Italians will spend some 100 million euros more on their Easter dinners this year. (ANSA).
