The cost-of-living index crept up by 1.6 percent in November, the Central Bureau of Statistics said Thursday.

The price index has risen at an annual rate of 16 percent since the start of the year, but the 25 percent rate rise over the last three months indicates that inflation in 1988 will be well above last year’s 16 percent.
