The Consumer Price Index (CPI) decreased by 0.1 per cent in November 2022 as compared to the month before.
This was mainly driven by the decrease in non-food index by 0.3 per cent due to the decrease in air fares.
However, food and non-alcoholic beverages index showed an increase of 0.4 per cent – primarily caused by an increase in onion prices. This is due to a shortage of available stock from producing countries, which coincided with unpredictable weather.
The CPI had increased by 3.1 per cent as compared to November 2021.
