“Inflation is running at a faster clip than we anticipated. If you go back to last year’s planning cycle that typically wraps up in late October, we held it open for a considerable period of time through December to really take a final look at our best sense of inflation. We built in a fairly healthy level of inflationary expectations into our budget. With that said, it’s running harder than we thought and you saw one of the things we did recently was to raise prices in response to that… we’re seeing inflation in labor, supplies, energy, transport. So we’re keeping an eye on it and it continues. Candidly, as I sit here today, I expect it to continue for the foreseeable future. We’re going to have to look at pricing again as a potential leverage to help offset that.
