The inflation rate of the last twelve months is 2.5%, a decimal less than the number registered in October. For the whole of Spain, prices also rose 5 decimals last November. However, the annual inflation for the whole of Spain was 2 decimals lower than Catalonia\u2019s, reaching 2.3%. The sectors that provoked the price increase were clothing and shoes, which rose 5.1% in Catalonia and 4.8% for the whole of Spain. They were conditioned by the start of the winter season. Fuel was also more expensive than in October, concretely 9 decimals.

However, leisure and culture items saw their price decrease, together with hotels, bars and restaurants. The end of the summer season, which includes part of October, is the main reason.
