An earlier Doxo study found that 9 out of 10 Americans (89%) have seen a jump in their household bills in the last year, with a rise in the utilities category rising most. "It's no secret that Americans have been feeling pain at the pump and that skyrocketing inflation is affecting far more than just gas prices." The Consumer Price Index determined that last month's Inflation hit the fastest pace since 1981.
