There has just been incredible amounts of money printed to bail out the banks, so does it not make sense that it does not show up as inflation in food and energy. The Federal Reserve Bank is the like putting the fox in charge of the chicken house. Howver, when stocks go up partly due to inflation alone, nobody complains about that.
That's #$%$ all... where I live in Canada, gas prices routinely move up or down much larger amounts once a week or so. Just this afternoon gas in my area is jumped from $5 to $5.50 a gallon right in time for the weekend. Life goes on... people just learn to deal with it.
