Inflation in the Netherlands rose to 1.9% in November, up 0.3 percentage point on the preceding month, reports the central statistics office CBS on Thursday.
The increase is mainly due to higher petrol prices which are 14.8% up on a year ago, said the CBS.
Groceries are also more expensive, especially milk products which are 12.2% higher than in November 2006.
When the Dutch inflation figure is calculated according to the harmonised EU method, inflation was 1.8% in November. The Netherlands has had the lowest inflation figure in the eurozone since August.
