The Scan: Friday, May 13, 2022

Welcome to The Scan for Friday, May 13! This week, we’re scanning the latest Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index numbers, as the government reported this week that the pace of inflation for food at home continued to accelerate in April. Inflation at the wholesale level, too, is running hot enough to fry an egg—speaking of which, egg producer prices in April were up 161% over year-ago levels.

We also have more on the baby-formula shortage challenging retailers and consumers nationwide, how consumers continue to adapt their grocery-buying habits in response to inflation, and a warm welcome and introduction to Jeniece Drake, the newest member of the WGB editorial team!
