We are more than a year into this and inflation is still running rampant across the global economy. Seemingly everything under the sun is getting more expensive from groceries, to lumber, to oil, and everything in between. As recently as October 2021, we saw a 30-year high in CPI increase at 6.2%. Many had thought inflation peaked in May, but this appears to be an increasing trend creating lasting impact.
