(Bismarck, ND) -- The cost of living in North Dakota is rising.

Inflation has caused prices of most everything households buy to go up.

Meanwhile, the cost of rent has increased dramatically, but more people are looking to rent due to rising mortgage rates.

While the Federal Reserve continues its rate hike campaign, the consumer price index has shown recently that prices are actually coming down, however slightly.
