WASHINGTON — Although Black Friday was heavily promotional, retailers apparently shied away from steep discounts earlier in November, driving up women's apparel a seasonally adjusted 0.9 percent, the largest such increase since January.
The price bump and increases in the gasoline and transportation areas boosted the price of all goods and services 0.8 percent last month compared with 0.3 percent in October. That overall rise was the largest since Hurricane Katrina helped push up prices 1.2 percent in September 2005, according to the Labor Department Consumer Price Index released Friday.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
