09/01/2013 - Annual inflation in the OECD area rose by 1.9% in the year to November 2012, compared with 2.2% in the year to October 2012. This easing in the annual rate of inflation mainly reflected slower growth in energy prices, which increased by 2.9% in November, down from 5.4% in October. Food price inflation rose slightly in November (to 2.2%, up from 2.1% in October). Excluding food and energy, the OECD annual inflation rate was unchanged for the fourth consecutive month, at 1.6% in November 2012.
