US inflation hit a 31-year high in October, but will it sway voters in the 2022 congressional elections? – USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – The United States is experiencing the highest rate of inflation since 1990, causing prices on everything from gas to food to increase, a trend that may impact how voters cast their ballots in the 2022 midterm elections. 

Prices for U.S. consumers jumped 6.2% in October compared to a year earlier – and were up 0.9% from September, according to numbers released last week by the Department of Labor.
