This is particularly noteworthy since the pace of price rise at the consumer level slowed to 3.2% in the same month.

Eventually=> आखखरिार , अतं में

Sticky=> िं जू स , धचपधचपा

Such sticky core inflation is driving the latest wholesale price surge with fuel and power rising a sharp 18.14%, manufactured products growing by almost 4% (thanks not to demand but upward commodity prices) and minerals by 1%.

Shale=> स्टेली पत्थर
Shale=>a rock with a fine grain formed from clay, mud, or silt.

Spike=> िील
Spike=>to increase greatly in a short period of time.

A rise in oil prices beyond $65 a barrel would be a cause for concern, as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said in his recent Budget, even if there is a belief that higher shale gas output will check a further spike.
