Consumer prices rise in August

Consumer prices in Jamaica rose 0.8 per cent in August.

It was the biggest increase since September 2018.

It moved inflation to 4.1 per cent for the last 12 months.

That was still within the four to six per cent range the Bank of Jamaica is targeting.

The price of produce such as tomatoes, onions and potatoes were the main drivers of inflation as well as higher costs for petrol and airline tickets.
