Inflation has been in full swing in recent months with everything from new vehicles to chicken wings seeing rapid increases in price. For some consumers, that’s a problem, especially with the unemployment rate remaining high in some sectors.

Combine that with the fact that federal unemployment benefits ended at the beginning of September and it seems likely that many people will be adversely affected.

Although inflation is high right now, that figure represents the entire economy. But not every product/service is the same, and some have increased in price faster than others. In fact, some items have even gotten cheaper.

One thing to notice in this gallery is that nearly every product/service in this gallery has seen its price increases level off in the June-July 2021 time period. Some have even gone negative.

But as far as over the last year, let’s dive right in and take a look at which items increased in price the most between July 2020 and July 2021.
