SINGAPORE Nike Hyperdunk Italia , Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- Singapore's overall consumer price index (CPI) edged up to 0.6 percent year on year in July, from 0.5 percent in June, according to local authorities.
The higher inflation was mainly contributed by higher retail and water prices in July, said the statement jointly released by the Ministry of Trade and Industry and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) on Wednesday.
The retail and water prices in Singapore rose by 1.2 percent, reversing the 0.2 percent decline in June.
Meanwhile, private road transport inflation also came in higher at 3.5 percent in July Nike M2K Tekno Italia , compared to 3.0 percent in June, mainly due to a smaller decline in car prices.
Services inflation rose slightly to 1.4 percent in July from 1.3 percent in the previous month, largely reflecting an increase in telecommunication services fees following price declines in June.
Food inflation was stable at 1.4 percent in July.
The cost of electricity and gas rose by a smaller 7.9 percent in July, compared to the 19.1 percent increase in June.
The price of accommodation fell by a steeper 4.1 percent in July, compared to the 3.9 percent decline in the preceding month, owing to a smaller increase in the cost of housing maintenance and repairs.
In July Nike React Hyperdunk Italia , the MAS core inflation of Singapore picked up to 1.6 percent year on year as compared with 1.5 percent in June, due largely to higher prices of water, retail and services.

DENVER, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- The International Olympic Committee (IOC)'s unprecedented move of awarding two Games on Wednesday will send the world's most elite athletes to Paris in 2024 and Los Angeles in 2028 - but the jubilation is punctuated by the raising of caution flags over the issue of cost.

"The Olympics are big business, and with each decade, they get bigger, more complicated and more costly," said Glenn Nemhauser, 62 Nike Odyssey React Italia , a businessman from Cotati, California.
Nemhauser was 29 when his home state hosted the Olympic games in 1984, and the real estate investor said the same economic fears from then are still present today.
"It was the economic disaster of the 1976 Montreal Games that prompted the IOC to choose LA to host the 1984 Games - nobody else wanted to take the economic hit," Nemhauser told Xinhua.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti signed the "host city contract" on Wednesday - promising the city will guarantee any debts related to the estimated 5.3-billion U.S. dollars price tag of the 2028 Games, according to the Los Angeles Times.
