Price Index drops slightly in October
The Zions Bank Wasatch Front Consumer Price Index fell 0.2 percent in October on a non-seasonally adjusted basis. According to a press release, the index has grown 1.2 percent since the same time in 2015. The decline was fueled by falling prices in several product categories, but Scott Anderson, CEO of Zions Bank, said Utah's economy remains strong, as evidenced by the number of people who traveled for Thanksgiving. "Consumers are taking advantage of relatively low transportation prices and signaling their confidence in their personal financial situations as well as the overall economy," he said in the release.
