Nevada Inflation Rate Hits 15.6%, Doubles the National Average

Surging prices costing Nevada families more than $10,000 a year


LAS VEGAS, NV – Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt released the following statement after new data from the U.S. Congress' Joint Economic Committee revealed that inflation in Nevada has surged to 15.6%, nearly twice the national CPI average. The data also shows that rising prices are costing Nevada households an additional $845 a month or $10,142 a year.


“The Biden/Cortez Masto tax and spend agenda is wreaking havoc on Nevada. We are now ground zero of the national inflation crisis.


“In every corner of our state, hardworking families are being crushed by a 15.6 percent inflation rate and some of the highest gas prices in the country. I speak with Nevadans every day who tell me they are being forced to cut back at the grocery store, skimp on back-to-school supplies for their kids, or even run up their credit card debt just to fill up their cars.


“This heartbreaking economic crisis is a direct result of President Biden’s and Senator Cortez Masto’s reckless decision to pump trillions of dollars into an already overheated economy. Nevadans will hold them accountable for their failed policies this November.”
