    BUDAPEST, May 6 (Reuters) - Food sales soared while fuel
sales plummeted in March, adding up to a 3.5% annual growth in
Hungary's calendar-adjusted retail sales after a
revised 11.2% annual increase in February, the Central
Statistics Office (KSH) said on Wednesday.
    "The pandemic situation and the gradually introduced legal
changes concerning the retail sector affected the sales in all
types of retail outlets," the KSH said in a statement.
    Food sales rose by 12.7% year-on-year, while non-food sales
were up by 0.5% and fuel sales were 16.7% lower, it said.
