The August Consumer-Price Index Report was released this week, revealing inflation rose 8.3% in comparison to August last year. While real wages fell for another month, groceries continue to get more expensive, with grocery prices seeing its largest increase in 43 years (+13.5%). Gas soared 25.6%, while rent increased 6.7%. Utilities such as electricity and gas increased nearly 20%. 

“While higher prices for groceries, utilities, and rent may not matter to a billionaire Heiress like Trudy Busch Valentine, working-class families in Missouri are the hardest hit by rising inflation caused by Joe Biden’s radical agenda.  As your U.S. Senator, I will fight to lower prices, end reckless spending, and unleash our nation’s domestic energy potential,” said Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt
