Do you have price data for the same items for this time frame in previous years? It could just be a seasonal thing due to the start of the tourist season.

I don't have any official numbers, I just have data by walking around.

Here in San Francisco

Food prices are up at Trader Joe's (but it's mixed)
Restaurant prices are up.
Our scavenger services are asking for a 20% increase in rates
Gas prices are down at Costco
Rent prices have stabilized.
Housing prices are up; markedly.

It could just be that spring has sprung.

But, there is quite a bit of construction going on. And that is different.
