National inflation will come at some point

(Festus) The stock market numbers continue to be strong, and Gross Domestic Product is increasing, but there are concerns for the future. Ben Hoeft with Fortune Investments in Festus says inflation will raise its ugly head before too long.

Hoeft says it comes down to supply and demand and gives an example of how inflation will affect things.

Hoeft says because of the price of lumber and other items, construction has slowed. The lack of supply of computer chips has slowed the production of building new vehicles by the automobile manufacturers, as well as items like motorcycles, ATVs, and watercraft.
