Inflation and Rice Up

Inflation jumped by 0.9 percent in Denpasar during the months of December and January, triggered by the religious holidays and associated activities.

The inflation rate year on year to January 2012 amounted to 3.62 percent. While most products such as foodstuffs, tobacco, housing, electricity, water, gas and fuels, etc, have risen in price, some have declined including education, recreation and sport. In a related story, rice prices have soared in Bali caused by a depleted stock from the recent inclement weather and insect pest attacks in some centres of rice production on the island.
