Looks like Idaho has dodged a bullet according to WalletHub who has released Cities Where Inflation Is Rising The Most. The author Adam McCann said "Though inflation has started to slow slightly due to factors like the Federal Reserve rate hikes, the year-over-year inflation rate was still a whopping 8.2% in September. This high inflation is driven by a variety of factors, including the continued presence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine and labor shortages. The government is hoping to continue to rein in inflation with additional aggressive interest rate hikes this year, but exactly how much of an effect that will have remains to be seen".

I think we've all seen the effects of inflation, but some cities are getting hit harder than others that's for sure. Every time I talk to my dad he spends about 15 minutes complaining about the inflation in California.

Idaho might not be feeling the effects just yet, but they are in the Seattle-Tacoma area. They are ranked 11th highest, while Phoenix is at the top of the list with a total score 95.28.

Here's the methodology behind their findings "In order to determine the cities where inflation is rising the most, WalletHub compared 23 MSAs (Metropolitan Statistical Areas) across two key metrics involving the Consumer Price Index, which measures inflation. The metrics are listed below, along with their corresponding weights. We then determined each MSA’s weighted average across the metrics and used the resulting scores to rank-order our sample.

For each MSA in the sample, we used the latest data available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. For some MSAs, there is a one-month lag on the data available."
