Estonia's consumer prices increased in April, data from Statistics Estonia showed on Friday.

The consumer price index grew 1.9 per cent year-on-year in April, following a 1.1-per-cent rise in March.

"Vehicles became 6.1-per-cent more expensive, most of which was due to the increased prices of used cars and also bicycles," Viktoria Trasanov, leading analyst at Statistics Estonia, said.

Diesel fuel prices declined 1.6 per cent, while petrol prices surged 13.5 per cent.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices gained 0.4 per cent in April, after a 0.2-per-cent drop in the previous month.
