PANAMA CITY Aug 12 (Reuters) - Panama's consumer prices increased 0.1 percent in July compared with June, the country's statistics office said on Wednesday.

The rise was principally due to higher costs of transport, food and drink and restaurants and hotels, the office said.

The annual inflation rate for the month was 1 percent, the office said. (Reporting by Elida Moreno; Editing by Bernard Orr)
