Uruguay: Inflation decreases in October

Inflation eased to 9.0% in October from September’s 9.9%. October's reading marked the lowest inflation rate since February. The slowdown was largely due to a softer rise in prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages, clothing and footwear, and transportation.

Lastly, consumer prices rose 0.21% in October over the previous month, following September's 0.84% increase. October's result marked the lowest reading since December 2021.
