The government statistician, Professor Samuel Kobina Annim, announced the increase. He attributed the increase to prices in the transport sub-sector.
He said the price level of food and non- alcoholic beverages reduced by -1.2%.
Prof Annim explained that this decline was due to a fall in price levels of vegetables and fruits.

He added that alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and narcotics recorded 13.2% and transport recorded 12.9%.
