Spanish inflation eased to 2.6 percent in March on a 12-month basis from 2.9 percent in February, mainly owing to lower prices for motor fuels, figures published on Friday by the national statistics institute INE showed.

Average inflation peaked at more than 3.0 percent late last year in Spain, following an increase in September of value-added taxes (VAT).
