Have you noticed as you fill-up the car, grab dinner with friends, buy groceries or pay for a service, it all seems to cost more? You’re not alone! Prices of everything, from energy to food, are rising, and it's got us all concerned.
Data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in 2023 showed we have experienced the highest yearly jump in the cost of living ever recorded – higher than the current inflation rate. Over the past 12 months, all living cost indices have risen between 7.1 percent and 9.6 percent for all households, compared to a 7 percent annual increase in inflation.
Energy price hikes, driven by supply chain disruptions and increased demand, are leaving us grappling with higher utility bills. While there are no simple solutions to these issues, the good news is you can buck the trend, save money, and protect the environment by becoming more energy efficient.
