AMMAN — The Department of Statistics (DoS) announced on Wednesday that the inflation rate reached 3.2 per cent during the first seven months of this year.

The DoS attributed the rise to higher rents, besides an increase in the prices of clothes and shoes, tobacco, transport and education.

This rise was coupled with a decrease in the prices of meat and poultry, hygienic products, oil and fat as well as telecommunications, the DoS said in a statement received by The Jordan Times.
