Frying up eggs and bacon at home might seem like a frugal move, but as the battle against inflation continues, it will still cost you.

Overall prices rose 3.2% in February compared to this time last year and 0.4% monthly, according to the most recent consumer price index report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That’s down from its 40-year peak at 9.1% in June 2022. While prices of goods like furniture and appliances have come down, services like rent and transportation keep climbing in cost.

Food and energy like gas (yes, that’s getting more expensive too), are excluded from the core inflation rates analyzed by policymakers, like the Federal Reserve in determining interest rates.
