Where inflation has grown the most– and the least

While the 40 year record level of inflation is a hot topic issue across the US, it has increased more quickly in some cities than others over the past year. 

WalletHub recently compared 23 major metropolitan statistical areas (MSA’s) using key metrics related to Consumer Price Index, which measures inflation to determine the differences between the cities.

It compared the Consumer Price Index for the latest month for which Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data is available, to two months prior and one year prior to assess how inflation changed in the short- and long-term.

By this metric, the city with most growth to inflation was Anchorage, Alaska at 12.4%, while the city with least growth to inflation was New York with 6.5%.
