Inflation on the Isle of Man is at its lowest level for 16 months.

At the end of 2011, the Retail Prices Index stood at 4.7%, down from 5% in November. 

Over the course of last year the biggest price increases were seen on tobacco and cigarettes, and fuel and light, with both going up by more than 10%.
