Update: Colorado still has the worst inflation in the country. Last week, the Joint Economic Committee released new data that shows Colorado still leads the country in inflation by state. Colorado’s inflation stands at 15.6% compared to what it was when Joe Biden took office. It costs Colorado families $953 more a month ( $11,436 more a year) in total costs to pay for basic needs. That breaks down to $116 more for food, $169 more for shelter, $372 more for transportation, and $188 more for energy. Thanks to horrible policies by Biden and Polis, everything costs more for the average family in our beautiful state.
