Consumer Price Index falls in December
The Zions Bank Wasatch Front Consumer Price Index fell 0.2 percent from November to December but remained above the Federal Reserve's national inflation target of 2 percent, according to a press release from Zions Bank. Despite the inflation, wages have grown in Utah at the fastest pace since the recession, giving hope that workers remain on solid footing in the economy. "Increasing inflation can sometimes spark fears that price increases will outpace wage growth," said Randy Shumway, chairman and founder of Cicero Group, in the release. "But wages grew last month at the quickest pace since 2009, indicating that American workers are keeping up with our rapidly growing economy."
