Annual inflation in Saudi Arabia was flat at 5.3% in January, similar to that in December, the country’s Central Department of Statistics and Information said in a report. The government’s cost of living index was almost unchanged at 139.1 points in January, compared with 139.0 points in December 2011, according to the Statistics Department. Inflation in the Kingdom is expected to moderate to an annual average of 4.4% in 2012, due to negligible external price pressures, resulting from lower commodity prices, a strong dollar; subdued inflation in its trading partners will underpin the decline.

Venezuela’s economy expanded at the fastest pace since 2008 in the 4Q11 as record oil revenues allowed the government to boost fiscal spending. The economy expanded by 4.9% in the 4Q11 from a year earlier, according to the Venezuelan central bank. The average oil export price of $101.06/b last year compared with $71.97 in 2010.
