Washington Post: Prices climbed 6.8% in November compared with last year, largest rise in nearly four decades, as inflation spreads through economy. “Prices rose 6.8 percent in November to a nearly 40-year high, compared with a year ago, as inflation continues to squeeze households and businesses nationwide and complicates the political environment for Congress and the White House. Consumer price index data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that prices rose 0.8 percent in November compared with October, with inflation spreading further throughout the economy, including to areas that had not been as affected by the coronavirus pandemic.”
