Inflation in the UK could pass 2% as product prices rise

The rate of inflation in Britain has surged in recent weeks. This has caused a slight increase in essential and non-essential services in the country. 

Inflation rate spikes in Britain 

Prices of goods have increased in Britain in January as financial analysts this will have a negative effect after the lockdown is eased. Most consumers pay more for essential goods and sellers have refused to offer discounts during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Inflation in the UK has risen to 0.8% in the last 11 months and is up to December's 0.5%. Some business analysts issued advice that this inflation will likely pass the Bank of England target which is 2% before the end of 2021. Inflation has been prevalent in virtually all nations of the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of borders. 

Food prices in major UK cities affected 

Many nations were shut down briefly after the outbreak of the virus early last year inflation influences prices rates and bank lending ratios. It is a key measure for the economic stability of a nation and affects all economic indices. With, inflation cash becomes more useless. According to the office of national statistics, food rates rose by 0.4% in January when compared with 0.2 last year.

Also, household products have risen because there have been fewer bonuses in prices as even wholesalers have run into huge losses. The major products in the US that have been discounted are fashion and entertainment goods. But bars and restaurants have seen price hikes due to low patronage. This price hike is expected to affect most sectors especially aviation, health, and transportation. 

Although the UK government has put in many financial policies to mitigate these effects, it seems they don't have the desired impact. This will be a great concern for the ONS as lockdown will be eased soon.
