JUBA - Inflation in import-dependant South Sudan shot up to 41 percent in November from 21.5 percent in October, increasing the urgency of sealing a peace deal to get its oil exports flowing again.

South Sudan won independence from Sudan in July 2011 after one of Africa's longest civil wars, but a dispute between the two shut down the South's oil industry in January, which usually makes up 98 percent of its state income.
