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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
