I noticed just the last few months, my utilities have gone up. Electricity, in particular, is up almost 10%. I was shocked. I thought something was wrong but I read some news stories saying other places, like in the UK, have seen an 80% increase! That is scary!!

Yeah, I think they have everywhere. I am not sure by how much but it was enough for me to notice it. Some places are way worse as you mentioned though. Yikes!

I have been paying more for everything from food to bills. It seems like everything is facing some strange inflation because the markets got jammed up.

I think they have. I don't actually handle the payments on them. I do room sharing and I am the one who pays for groceries and other things like that while the utilities are handled by someone else and we all split the rent.

I don't know. I really don't pay attention. I am guessing if they did, it wasn't by much or I would have noticed. The cost of food is what has gone up the most for me.

Yup! They went up in 2021. They have gone up, even more, this year dude to the conflict happening with Ukraine. I think the prices were already going to go up but that just made everything worse.

My utilities are about 20% higher I would say. Not ideal but not as bad as in some other areas. It seems like there are quite a lot of places facing huge rising costs.

I am glad I am not alone then but at the same time, I don't like how expensive things are getting. It is really going to make it harder for me to save for travel!

@soulie That has been one of my worries. I will have to cut back on travel with prices going up. I had to delay my next trip to Vietnam as I need to buy a car in November now.
