Mensagem:  No. Some backpedaling required here. We'd rather see "the cost of living and inflation" as a sole or solid entity having the power and structure of a single subject. A single subject usually requires a verb singular.

Your example reads singular. I repeat, singular. Your example sounds grammatically correct. I repeat, correct.
