Inflation Surges to 4-Year High as Bidenflation Wreaks Havoc

The following article, Inflation Surges to 4-Year High as Bidenflation Wreaks Havoc, was first published on .

Biden is thoroughly wrecking our economy as inflation surges 8.5 percent in March, hitting a 40-year high and growing at the fastest rate in decades.

According to the Labor Department, the consumer price index rose at the fastest pace since 1981.

Per Fox News:

The Labor Department said Tuesday that the consumer price index – which measures a bevy of goods including gasoline, health care, groceries and rents – rose 8.5% in March from a year ago, the fastest pace since December 1981, when inflation hit 8.9%. Prices jumped 1.2% in the one-month period from February, the largest month-to-month jump since 2005.

Economists expected the index to show that prices surged 8.4% in March from the previous year and 1.2% on a monthly basis.

So-called core prices, which exclude more volatile measurements of food and energy, climbed 6.5% in March from the previous year – up from the 6.4% increase recorded in February. It was the steepest 12-month increase since August 1982.

Price increases were widespread: Energy prices rose a stunning 11% in March from the previous month, and are up 32% from last year. Gasoline, on average, costs 48% more than it did last year after rising 18.3% in March on a monthly basis as the Russian war in Ukraine fueled a rapid increase in oil prices

Some of the price hikes are extreme:

  • Bread up 7%
  • Electricity up 11%
  • Coffee up 11.2%
  • Eggs up 11.3%
  • Milk up 13.3%
  • Meat, poultry, fish up 13.8%
  • Car rentals up 23.4%
  • Airfare up 23.6%
  • Used cars, up 35.3%
  • Gas is up 48%

Biden has essentially leveled a tax on the most vulnerable Americans. We went form the best economy in decades ti a new president who destroyed it all in less than a year.
