The cost of one-gallon of milk is not the same as it was a year ago. Why?
Well, the answer is rising inflation. As per the report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics this month, inflation rose by 5% in the last 12 months, which is the biggest jump since August 2008.
As the Federal Reserve's two-day meeting ends Wednesday, investors are closely looking at how the Fed Chair Jerome Powell weighs in on inflation.
TheStreet has been extensively covering inflation and talked to many experts.
