More levels broken

As a result, it was 12 percent higher. higher than December last year. The double-digit increase in the average in Wrocław and Poznań is not a surprise, although it should be noted that after the August price acceleration, in September we recorded “only” 1 percent in these metropolises. raise,” experts write.
