From John Robertson

The annual percentage change in the Consumer Price Index went up slightly from 3,24% in December to 3,51% in January, according to the Zimstat tables issued today. The month-on-month percentage change showed a 1,1% increase in January, the largest portion of which came from Transport, which increased by 5,16% after passenger fares went up by 12,59%. The expected rise in fuel prices showed a much more modest 2,2%, which suggests that the sampling carried out for the prices survey did not include the service stations that had increased prices the most.
