Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Venezuela’s consumer prices rose 1.6 percent nationwide in September as the pace of monthly price increases slowed, said a government official familiar with the inflation report to be released later today.
The inflation rate will begin to decelerate and monthly inflation may be closer to 1 percent in the coming months, said the official, who isn’t authorized to speak publicly. The official declined to say how much prices had risen from a year earlier.
The central bank is expected to release the full consumer price report later today. Prices rose 2.2 percent nationwide in August.
