Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, December 7 (Xinhua) According to a survey released by Gallup on the 6th, 55% of Americans believe that rising prices have caused financial difficulties for their families, and 13% of Americans believe that high prices have caused their families to face "serious" difficulties.
The survey results show that no less than 66% of the low-income groups in the United States are in financial difficulties, and this figure is at least 60% of the middle-income groups.
Even among the high-income groups who are "least likely to be negatively affected by high commodity prices", 42% of them still feel the burden of high commodity prices.
The survey was conducted on the Gallup online platform from November 9th to 27th, and the survey was conducted among more than 1,800 American adults.
In a similar Gallup survey in August, 56 percent of respondents said rising prices were weighing on household finances.
Gallup pointed out that there are signs that U.S. inflation has eased slightly recently, while the two surveys were basically flat rather than falling sharply, which may reflect a larger year-on-year price increase this year.
In order to make most Americans no longer feel the pressure of high prices, more measures are needed to ease inflation.
U.S. inflation remains high.
According to data released by the US Department of Labor on November 10, the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) in October increased by 0.4% month-on-month and 7.7% year-on-year.
