Singapore's inflation rose by 5.7% on-year in November, with transport costs rising 11.6%

SINGAPORE - Singapore's inflation rose 5.7 per cent on-year in November due to higher costs of housing, cars and petrol. Data from the Department of Statistics (DOS) showed housing costs increased by 10 per cent on higher accommodation costs and electricity tariffs. Meanwhile, transport costs rose 11.6 per cent due to increases in Certificate of Entitlement premiums and petrol prices. Food prices also went up 3.6 per cent. Not including accommodation costs, inflation was 4.4 per cent higher than in the previous year. Last month's consumer price index was higher than market expectations of a 5.4-per-cent on-year increase. The consumer price index in January-November 2011 was 5.2 per cent higher compared to the same period last year. Excluding accommodation costs, the consumer price index increased by 4.2 per cent during the same period.
