Food and fuel push up inflation

The Dutch retail price index rose in October by 1.6% compared to the same period last year, the national statistics office CBS announced on Thursday.

The rise is blamed on food (products such as bread, milk and fresh vegetables are 6-7% more expensive), and fuel (up 9.6% on last year).
The Dutch inflation rate of 2.1% in September remains under the Eurozone average of 2.6%.
