Inflation went up by 9.9% to 50.3% in the month of November 2022, according to latest figures from the Ghana Statistical Service.

This is the highest figure recorded in 27 years.

The increment was expected because of fuel price increases and the cedis’ depreciation during the month under review.

However, the trend may halt or reverse in December 2022 due to the recent improvement in the value of the cedi to the dollar and fall in fuel prices.

Non-food inflation also shot up by 7.2% to 46.5% in November 2022.
