Montana’s are still seeing higher foid and gasoline prices and they are expected to grow but more slowly in 2023 than in 2022.

Prices for both are still at above-historical average rates. In 2023, all food prices are predicted to increase 7.5 percent, with a prediction interval of 5.5 to 9.6 percent.
“As skyrocketing inflation continues to crush Montana families, indicated by the February CPI report released two weeks ago showing a six percent annual increase, I’m highlighting Dave Zincowicz, a retired Vietnam Veteran from Ravalli County,” said Sen. Daines.

“Dave is on a fixed income and it’s difficult for him to bear the burden of President Biden’s lack of economic leadership. It’s been tough for him to afford everything from groceries to gas,” said Sen. Daines.

Each week, Senator Daines will highlight a video on his social media channels of a Montanan talking about how President Biden’s economic policies affect them personally.   

“I feel for all Montanans’ on a fixed income. Montanans like Dave keep seeing prices go up and up and up. We need action. We need prices to start going down,” Daines said.
