Unless you are living in a cave you know prices for everything are going up despite the FED'S insistence that inflation is low to non-existent. Walmart missed earnings for crying out load, how does that happen?? Their customers are all SNAP recipients!! HINT - THEIR PURCHASING POWER IS GOIING DOWN!!! Chained CPI, that is what the FED means by transparency??? Boy we are all in trouble. Personal anecdote - I dont regularly service my car so the last time I bought motor oil was a few years ago and it was about $2 qt on sale. Yesterday the cheapest I could find was $4.99/qt at Autozone - yes we have no inflation.
