Jordan's inflation edged down by 0.4 per cent at the end of January this year, according to the Department of Statistics  (DoS) report.

The slight decrease was attributed to the decline in prices of transportation, fuel, electricity tariffs, vegetables, beans and beverages, the DoS report, sent to The Jordan Times, said.

Prices of rentals, cigarettes, fruits, poultry and meat rose during Januray, the report added. As of Januray 2015, the department recalculated the inflation rate based on 2010 prices as the reference year and not 2006, in line with the international indicators.
