Between higher airfare and gas, Arkansas could be in for a more expensive summer

According to local economist Michael Pakko, the latest consumer price index report from April showed prices up over 4% from a year ago.

Whether you’re at the grocery store, a clothing shop, or booking a family vacation… have you noticed everything is just a little more expensive?

Well, you’re not wrong. Prices are up for almost everything and they may last longer than we hope for.

This summer, it seems like everyone is making up for lost time. Whether it’s going to the beach again or buying clothes other than sweatpants, people are ready to spend.
