Stamp Inflation 13% in a 13 month period!

BBC News: First class stamps to rise by 2p

First class stamps to rise by 2p to 34p April 2007 up from 30p last March...13.3% increase in just a year.
A new pricing structure for letters was introduced in August
The price of a first class stamp is to rise by 2p to 34p from next April, the Royal Mail has announced.
The cost of a second class stamp will also increase, by 1p to 24p. The hikes come after the price of both stamps rose 2p last April.
The cost of larger first class letters of up to 100g will rise 4p to 48p, and bigger second class items by 3p to 40p.

I thought general inflation was around 3%?
