In October, the all-items CPI was expected to have soared 0.5%, adding 0.4% from September. That’s what the median estimate of 10 financial experts in the survey informed.

Private road transport costs will most likely edge up because of higher Certificate of Entitlement prices as well as a jump in petrol prices during the month, as experts explained.

Additionally, the survey also disclosed that in October the Monetary Authority of Singapore's core inflation measure grew 1.5% from 2016, while staying intact from September.
