Forecast: More expensive to live next year

It will be more expensive to live next year. This shows a forecast compiled by the Swedish Consumer Agency for household costs in the coming years.

The increase to 2024 is not as large as between 2022 and 2023, but is expected to hit already vulnerable households hard, according to the authority.

2023’s high interest rates and expensive rents are expected to continue into 2024, but some spending areas are expected to ease.

Above all, the electricity bill is predicted to be around 30 percent cheaper in 2024, compared to this year, the Consumer Agency believes.
