the french face higher prices in 2012

French people will pay more for some food items, including sodas, as well as books and museum visits. Bills for restaurants, hotels and in-house services, such as house cleaning and repairs, will also be more expensive in 2012.

Basic food items, such as water, non-alcoholic beverages, fruits and vegetables will continue to be taxed at 5.5% in France. Hard alcohol and other food products that are not considered basic necessities will be taxed at 7% in an effort to plug the country's budget deficit.
