it’s not good in the winter to have low petro.

well damn straight they should have raised our checks this year.

this is not a political post, is it?

hope not.

Grocery and gas prices are up in my part of Canada. I have had to change shopping habits.

Energy prices have sharply increased in Belgium. Especially electricity and gas. Wages have gone up also though as they are automatically adjusted to inflation.

I think you can blame corona and generous governments.

COVID-19 has caused supply chain disruptions and high consumer demand for goods. In other words, demand is much higher than supply, so prices increase.

Inflation will decrease as the supply of goods increases, along with the Federal Reserve raising interest rates.

what are you trying to say, Make more?

Supply will increase, demand will decrease. Inflation will decrease. Basic economics.

This thread definitely has political undertones, with people blaming one party…both parties…etc. Considering closing. Try to focus on economics please and don’t turn into politics or will have to close.
