Inflation continued to slow for many goods and services last month, led by a fall in the cost of petrol and diesel, along with an easing of the rate for a range of everyday groceries including bread, eggs, pasta and soft drinks.

A handful of items saw a jump in rate of inflation, however, such as coffee, crisps and olive oil, official figures show.

The average cost of petrol was down year-on-year by 7.7% in November, a larger fall than the drop of 5.2% in October, reflecting the decrease in prices last month.

It is a similar picture for diesel, where prices were down 15.4% in the year to November compared with a drop of 11.8% in the year to October.

Bread saw a particularly sharp slowdown in inflation, with the average price up 3.2% in the year to November compared with a jump of 8.5% in October.

Sugar, pizza and quiche, air travel and frozen vegetables all saw inflation at least three percentage points lower in November compared with October, according to the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) data published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Items where inflation accelerated in the year to November include children’s footwear (up 12.2% compared with a rise of 8.1% in October) and frozen seafood (up 8.9% compared with 5.8%).
