Consumer prices in September rose at their fastest this year.
Prices increased by an average 1.1 per cent.
The Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) said inflation in September was pushed by higher electricity and water costs.
Food prices also went up, especially for vegetables and starches.
In the last 12 months, inflation has been recorded at three per cent.
It is below the Bank of Jamaica's target of having prices rising by about five per cent.
