have risen 5.6% in November compared with the same month of the previous year for food and gasoline, which means that its growth is accelerated in the final stretch of the year after rising 5.4% October, according to the




published this Monday by the National Institute of Statistics.

If this data is confirmed within fifteen days, when the Institute publishes the final numbers,

public pensions will rise by 2.5% in 2022

, with which pension spending will grow next year by
