High Inflation Adds Financial Pressure
The Bank of England announced inflation is set to be high for the foreseeable future and currently stands at 3.7 percent.
Consumers will be feeling the pinch following the recent increase in VAT, soaring petrol costs and now high inflation, meaning for many their cash will not go as far as it may need to.
This inflation measure has been above the Bank of England’s target of 2 percent for 13 consecutive months, as highlighted by Moneysupermarket.
“People should be doing everything they can to lessen the effects of the current economic environment,” said Kevin Mountford, Moneysupermarket’s head of banking.
“Spending wisely, using discount vouchers and shopping around to make sure you are getting the cheapest deals on your borrowing and household bills all stand consumers in good stead.”
