Consumer price index rises in Utah
The Zions Bank Wasatch Front Consumer Price Index saw a 0.2 percent bump in February. According to a press release, the index has increased 3.2 percent since the same time last year, mostly on the back of rising housing prices. “A strong housing market translates to a stronger overall economy throughout the state,” said Scott Anderson, Zions Bank’s president and CEO, in the release. “As housing prices rise, residents are more confident in the value of their homes. They then become more confident in their purchasing power, which has positive repercussions across the economy.”
