ATLANTA — A new study claims Atlanta and the metro area ranked fifth in the nation for inflation. According to a WalletHub analysis, the metro area has seen a 1.10% increase in inflation in the last two months and a 4.40% increase compared to last year.
Atlanta resident Ariel Alba said he’s not surprised.
“From where it was, everything now is more expensive,” Alba said. “Everything went up… food, groceries, gas, a lot of stuff.”
