Consumer Price Index rises in January
The Zions Bank Wasatch Front Consumer Price Index increased 0.2 percent from December to January and has increased three percent from the same period last year. According to a press release, the increase can largely be attributed to the prices of vehicles, car insurance rates and airfare rose. Scott Anderson, president and CEO of Zions Bank, said in the release that falling oil prices could throw the market into flux, but the long-term future is bright. "The sustained drop in oil prices has been distressing to some industries," he said. "But while we may see some further market volatility in the coming months, recent increases in prices among several major consumer product categories—including oil itself—give us reason to be optimistic."
