The objectives of this article are marking the conceptual antinomies of signification in the field of services, and identifying a specific cycle of ser-vice activities, with examples illustrative of Romania, and the main work hypothesis concerns the confrontation of different sets of behaviours of service consumers and providers as against the producers and consumers of products, reflected both in the different levels of inflation in services and products, and by completely different elasticity coefficients in Romania. The methodology is predominantly statistical and econometric, high-lighting weaknesses and qualities of the current Romanian index of ser-vice charges, focusing on the strengths of its practical utility.
