What do they count? I can’t think of anything that hasn’t gone up.

Friday’s report said that year-over-year, consumer prices were up 2% and core prices rose 2%, matching the Fed’s target for annual inflation.
Somehow my budget seems to say otherwise. Maybe my “market basket” is defective somehow.

What is interesting in the report, is that new car prices fell slightly while used car price rose slightly. From what I've read and seen, there is a glut of new cars sitting on lots. Even with low subprime rates for new cars and zero down for people with better credit, there is an upward pressure on used car prices..

Just went and filled up on Thursday. The price per gallon went down. I was a little taken back by it.
They have been steadily rising over the past month. I’m sure once summer comes around, gas prices will skyrocket.
