The rising cost of living in the United States has caused many people to have to watch their spending, with the impact of inflationthe COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine all contributing towards the tough times many Americans are going through right now. There are some programs that have been introduced by state governments to try and help people when it comes to paying for their essentials, with this including gas stimulus checks, inflation stimulus payments and more.
Inflation Stimulus Payments
There are 11 states in the USA that have so far decided to use their budget surplus to issue an inflation stimulus checkof which the amount varies state by state.
The inflation rate in the USA is the highest that it has been in 40 years and the goal is for this money to provide a boost to many citizens, even though in all of the cases it is less than the extra 2,000 dollars that the average citizen is expected to pay out this year due to rising costs of everything around them.
Will there be a Gas Stimulus Check?
One area in particular that has seen a sharp rise in the price lately is with gasas a mixture of inflation and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to the cost of gas going up.
Therefore, the hope is that the Gas Rebate Act of 2022 will be passed and this will send out rebates of 100 dollars per monthin addition to 100 dollars for each dependentto taxpayers who are living in areas where the average price per gallon is above four dollars.
