(AP) China says the country's consumer price index, the main gauge of inflation, rose 2.0 percent in November, up from the previous month's 1.7 percent.


The National Bureau of Statistics says the change was driven largely by a 3.0 percent increase in food prices, including a 11.3 percent boost in the cost of vegetables. Food prices are unusually sensitive in a society where the poorest families spend up to half their incomes to eat.


The agency cites disruptions due to cold weather for the rise in vegetable prices.
