SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore’s key consumer price gauge rose 5.1% in August, slightly more than forecast, driven by larger increases in the prices of services and food, official data showed on Friday.

The core inflation rate — the central bank’s favoured price measure – rose to 5.1% in August on a year-on-year basis. A Reuters poll of economists had forecast a 5.0% increase in August. Headline inflation rose to 7.5%, compared with economists’ forecast of 7.2%.
