As gas prices rise and inflation skyrockets, many Americans are finding it harder to buy a home. Sales of new homes have fallen 16.6% in the last month, the biggest month drop since 2013, according to The Wall Street Journal. Home prices have risen by 18.8% last year, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Home Price Index, the Wall Street Journal reported.

United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen admitted that she “was wrong” about the path inflation would take in a Thursday interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, after Blitzer asked if she made a mistake in downplaying the risk of inflation.

Some gas stations have taken to adding an extra digit to their pump meters, in preparation for gas prices reaching $10, according to the Post Millennial. The average price of gas has shot up to a record high number, at $4.37 per gallon.
