October 10, 2017
In September, consumer prices rose 2.0% from the previous month, which contrasted August’s 0.1% decrease. September’s rise was largely driven by higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Inflation rose from August’s 16.2% to 16.4% in September, the highest reading since March 2016. Annual average inflation followed suit, rising from 13.3% in August to 14.1% in September.
