AFP-FL: We Need to Fight Inflation, Not Fuel It, as Floridians Access Hurricane Supplies

Jun 19, 2024 by AFP

Tallahassee, FL—Florida remains among the hardest hit states by inflation, and as we are in the midst of an unpredictable storm season, the cost of many essential supplies has skyrocketed due to top-down economic policies from Washington.

Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) is hosting various events around the state to help provide relief to residents preparing for storms while also offering policy solutions to address soaring inflation which hurts the cost of goods.

AFP-FL State Director, Skylar Zander, issued the following statement:

“In Florida, we never know what to expect during a storm season and stocking up on essential goods and supplies should not come at an unaffordable cost to hardworking families. Creating a more open regulatory market at the federal level will help fight inflation instead of fuel it. 

“Our economic policies should be more predictable than storm season. By reining in government’s out-of-control spending and red tape regulations, residents throughout Florida and the nation can experience relief from the inflated prices of gas, dry goods, water, batteries and more. It’s time Congress restores our economy to lift the burden off Floridians bracing for hurricanes.”
