AMMAN — Jordan's inflation rate increased by 3 per cent by the end of October compared with the same period of last year, according to the Department of Statistics (DoS) report. The rise was attributed to higher rents, besides an increase in the prices of tobacco, cigarettes, clothes, footwear, education and transport. This was coupled with a decrease in the prices of vegetables, hygienic products, fat and oil as well as telecommunications.
