This is a jump from the 4.3% inflation recorded in February, which hiked from 4.0% the month prior. 

ING economist Nicholas Mapa said prices could continue to increase in the coming months. 

"It does appear evident that current supply chain disruptions will be enough to drive both the headline
and core inflation readings higher. Given tightening supply chains and still elevated global
commodity costs, we believe price pressures will remain evident in the coming months," Mapa said.
