    • for Transport, whilst petrol prices have fallen over the month, they still remain higher than they were 12 months ago, and travel costs both by air and sea continue to contribute
    • Heating oil, which has increased despite global oil markets, and rent continue to be driving the housing category

  • Over 12 months, most categories continue to experience an increase in prices although Clothing and Footwear, Health and Food and Non-alcoholic beverages did experience slight falls over 12 months which was driven by price reductions across a wide number of product groups
