'Households face 1,500-euro expense rise in 2013' (ANSA) - Rome, December 27 - Italian households will see their expenses rise by a whopping 1,500 euros each in 2013, consumer groups said Thursday.

Hikes in train tickets, car insurance, household bills, bank and postal charges, waste-disposal levies and the new IMU property tax will be "unsustainable" for the countless households already struggling to make ends meet, said Adusbef and Federconsumatori.
