Everyday items like toilet paper and garbage bags are getting a little more expensive, at least more than official inflation numbers would suggest. It's no secret the rent is too darn high in the Golden State, but after Californians rejected a cost control measure last year, lawmakers are looking for other ways to protect renters from the skyrocketing cost of living. The U.S.-China tariff deadline looms. Plus, as Venezuela's political and economic crisis deepens, the government is on the hunt for dollars.
