As many as 87 percent of Poles feel strongly affected by increased food prices, a survey revealed on Wednesday.

Seventy one percent said they were most hit by rising fuel costs, 45 percent named utility costs.

According to the Payback Opinion Poll run by Payback Polska, rising inflation has forced Poles to cut their spending. Asked what expenses they have limited or resigned from, 45 percent named cinema and restaurants, 36 percent food, fuel and transport, 31 percent energy costs.

Ninety five percent said they feared further price hikes.

The online survey was run from August 22 to 24 on a sample of 1,021 Poles aged 18-65.
