The figure was 0.4 percentage points down compared with the year 2017, and was the third highest average inflation rate in the previous 10 years, the office said in a release.

The cost of basic necessities, such as food, housing and transport, along with alcohol and tobacco, accounted for the largest part of the increase, it said.
