Excluding food and fuel prices, which are the most volatile, core inflation in October was 0.6%, with an annual rate of 4.6%.

Energy prices rose by 4.8% in October and food prices rose by 0.9%, according to the government report.

In particular, prices paid by consumers for gasoline increased by 6.1% last month and are up 49.6% in a year.
