There is growing concern among Americans when it comes to inflation. A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey released last week found 76 percent of American adults are at least somewhat concerned about inflation, including 45 percent who are very concerned.

Fourteen percent are not very concerned and just two percent are not at all concerned.

The survey revealed 79 percent of Americans are paying more for groceries than they were last year. Thirteen percent say they are not. Sixty-six percent say they expect the amount they spend for groceries to increase a year from now.
