People in Argentina have become resigned to the constant price hikes and inflation that have plagued the country. The economy has experienced permanent price increases, with inflation reaching 138 percent in the interannual index. The situation has led to financial struggles for many, with even those in the middle class feeling the impact. The upcoming presidential election is expected to further destabilize the economy. The poorest in the outskirts of Buenos Aires are particularly affected, with declining income and limited access to basic services.
