Another Biden Record: Inflation Rose 7% in 2021 to Highest Level Since 1982

Inflation rose 7% in 2021 the highest level in 39 years since 1982 when it was 7.1%.

Inflation was up 5.5% excluding food and energy.
This is a disaster.

CNBC reported:

Inflation plowed ahead at its fastest 12-month pace in nearly 40 years during December, according to a closely watched gauge the Labor Department released Wednesday.

The consumer price index, a gauge that measures costs across dozens of items, increased 7%, according to the department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. On a monthly basis, CPI increased 0.5%.

Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting the measure to increase 7% on an annual basis and 0.4% from November.

The annual move was the fastest increase since June 1982.
