Cost of Living Up Slightly

Israel’s cost-of-living index for June, the last full month of the Likud-led government, rose by a low 0.1 percent, the Central Bureau of Statistics announced Wednesday.

The increase was lower than the 0.5 percent rise that was expected.

The inflationary increase during the first six months of 1992 was 4.1 percent, forecasting an annual rate of 11 to 12 percent this year.
