IELTS Grammar: with + ing

Look at the following sentence from one of my task 1 answers:

A dramatic increase in both commodity prices was seen from 2007 to 2008, with oil prices reaching a peak of approximately $130 per barrel and the food price index rising to 220 points.

Notice how this sentence is written: first I state the overall trend, then there is a comma, then I add the statistics using "with + ing".

See if you can write a similar sentence using the information below.
