Cost of Living Survey: Tell us how inflation is affecting you and your family

The Irish are facing a cost of living crisis as the price of energy, fuel and food has risen with inflation at its highest rate in 22 years.

The latest data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) shows that the annual rate of inflation rose to 7% in April.

The price of meat, bread, cereals, milk, cheese and eggs has increased.

Diesel is 40% higher than a year ago, while gasoline is 24% higher.

Electricity bills are 28% higher and gas bills took a big jump and are now a little over 50% higher than they were in April of last year.

Home heating oil is just over 90% higher than it was a year ago, according to the CSO.

The Irish Mirror wants to hear from the public about how they are dealing with the rising cost of living.

We want to hear your views on what you think the government should do to help ease the burden on the Irish public.

The Government has already introduced a number of measures to help people with skyrocketing bills, such as a €200 energy credit, reduced fuel excise duties and extended fuel allowances for some.

But is this enough?

We’d like our readers to take our cost of living survey to help highlight the struggles facing Irish households across the country.
