President Biden says the Federal Reserve needs to get inflation under control. He thinks increasing interest rates will lower prices.

"While NY is experiencing record inflation from the grocery store to the gas pump... (New Yorkers) will now contend with rising utility costs. National Grid has announced an increase in utility rates by 8% during an especially cold part of winter," Molinaro stated. "Once again, the White House and Congress have no answers - and Delgado remains silent on an issue hurting our communities."

A RetailMeNot spokesperson predicted "inflation woes" will continue in 2022.


"And expect the same supply-chain-related delays that have plagued shoppers since the holiday shopping season. If electronics, a new car, or furniture are on your shopping list for 2022, those categories are going to be particularly affected," the spokesperson stated.
