With inflation at the highest its been in years, this news comes as a win to consumers everywhere. As rent prices increase, food prices skyrocket, and gas costs burning a hole in everyone’s pockets – we need all the help we can get.
News like this is important to keep up with it because it reminds us that we should always keep an eye on economic trends. With midterms coming up, both political parties will be making statements regarding the economy that will affect us all – regardless of where you fall on the party lines.
