DENVER (KDVR) — You may have noticed the price of food at your grocery store has gone up over the past year, but it’s not your bread and milk that’s seen a price hike.
Statewide, Colorado has seen significant inflation over the past year on all goods, including gasoline and building materials. The price of food has gone up 2.2%, just in the past month.
“We haven’t seen those kinds of numbers in over a decade,” said Chris Howes, president of the Colorado Retail Counsel.
