Inflation rose 0.3% in April and 8.3% year-over-year, according to April Consumer Price Index data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics released Wednesday, May 11. The most recent numbers represent a modest reprieve from March's staggering 1.2% month-over-month increase. Stacker analyzed the Consumer Price Index data to determine which common grocery store items saw the largest price increases in April. Despite the overall pace of headline inflation easing, the cost of groceries alone increased 10.8% since April 2021"the largest annual increase in 42 years. This increase was driven largely by a rise in prices of meat, poultry, fish, and eggs"up 14.3% year-over-year and the largest 12-month increase since 1979.

The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO. The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision " Planned Parenthood v.
