Eight of the 11 commodity categories used for the city’s CPI
calculation saw their prices up in November, the municipal Statistics Office said in a report on Friday.
The rise in consumer prices in the city was ascribed to a hike in running water price, which resulted in a 0.37% rise in the housing, electricity and water, fuel and building materials category, said the office.
The price of gold in the city, which is not taken into CPI basket, rose 0.1% in November from October while the price of U.S. dollar slid 0.38%.
The General Statistics Office is due to release Vietnam’s CPI next week.
