These levels are lower than those recorded in October, when the index recorded levels of 3.7% and 0.3% on an annual and monthly basis, respectively.

As for the main inflation index, it slowed to 3% last month on an annual basis, after it had recorded 3.4% in October.

Markets are awaiting the Federal Reserve meeting next month, to determine whether the Fed will raise interest rates one additional time before the end of 2023.
