    Those cheering the 5.9% increase in cost of living for Social Security need to look at the other side of the coin. Health care will go up at least 5%. If anything else goes up, you're still losing money.

    Health care is a joke at the federal level. I have no idea why I'm paying the same as a 65 year old diabetic.

    I'm still on the transitory side though. Much of this is self fulfilling. Articles now about people doing Christmas shopping now so they don't have to worry about supply issues. The oil/energy issues are a result of bad policies and forcing solar, etc. down everyone's throats. Some type of renewable energy will be here in the future, but it won't happen overnight. No incentives for large companies to drill thanks to public shareholders (re: XOM, Engine No. 1). The only companies doing any drilling or exploration will have to be private ones that don't answer to large shareholders such as Black Rock and Vanguard bound by ESG and other acronym mandates popular on social media.

    The nat gas fiasco worldwide can be blamed 100% on bad policies. Europe wants to "go green" and have NATO in their backyard, but can't break free from Nord Stream supply.

    Sorry if that post got off topic. To clarify here, there should be incentives for people to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Sure, there are underlying health conditions, but when you pay a flat rate no matter what, where's the incentive to stop unhealthy behaviors such as smoking? In the end we all pay for it. My health care costs are going up 10% from 2020 to 2022. That's a big hit.

    U.S. consumer prices jump 6.2% in October, the biggest inflation surge in more than 30 years

    The consumer price index surged 6.2% from a year ago in October, the most since December 1990.

    Core inflation, stripping out food and energy, increased 4.6%, the fastest gain since November of the same year.

    Energy, shelter and vehicle costs led the gains, which more than wiped out the wage increases that workers received for the month.

    Inflation surged 6.8% in November, even more than expected, to fastest rate since 1982

    Inflation rose 6.8% from a year ago in November, slightly higher than estimates according to the consumer price index released Friday.

    Excluding food and energy, the CPI increased 4.9%, in line with expectations.

    Surging prices for food, energy and shelter accounted for much of the gains.

    Ah, October was the Good Ole' Days. Inflation was only at 6.2% rather than accelerating to 6.8%.

    Gotta reach back to the days of Reagan/Volker to get a number like that.

    A Fed Rate of 18% to beat inflation!!!

    What, me worry???

    Why, my cost of living increase will be around 2.7%!!!
    Lookin' up at the 'G Fund'!!!

    Inflation rises 7% over the past year, highest since 1982

    The consumer price index, an inflation gauge that measures costs across dozens of items, rose 7% in December from a year earlier, the fastest pace since June 1982.

    That was in line, however, with economist estimates, and stock market futures rose after the release.

    Excluding food and energy, so-called core CPI was up 5.5% on the year, the biggest growth since February 1991.

    Inflation rises 7.5% over the past year, even more than expected and the highest since 1982

    The consumer price index for all items rose 0.6% in January, driving up annual inflation by 7.5%.

    That marked the biggest gain since February 1982 and was even higher than the Wall Street estimate.

    Core inflation rose 6%, which also was a notch higher than expectations.

    Real earnings for workers increased just 0.1% on the month when accounting for inflation.

    Weekly jobless claims declined to 223,000, below the 230,000 estimate.

    All this talk about how workers had momentum in getting pay raises and it all came out to a .1% increase in real wages.

    Inflation rose 7.9% in February, as food and energy costs push prices to highest in more than 40 years

    The consumer price index for February rose 7.9% from a year ago, the highest level since January 1982.

    Excluding food and energy, both of which moved sharply higher during the month, core inflation still rose 6.4%, in line with expectations but the highest since August 1982.

    Gas, groceries and shelter were the biggest contributors to the CPI gain. Auto prices eased.

    Worker paychecks fell further behind, as inflation-adjusted earnings fell 0.8% in February, contributing to a 2.6% decline over the past year.

    It is expected to rise further so next month's number may not be better.

    Consumer prices rose 8.5% in March, slightly hotter than expected and the highest since 1981

    Headline CPI in March rose by 8.5% from a year ago, the fastest annual gain since December 1981 and one-tenth of a percentage point above the estimate.

    Surging food, energy and shelter costs helped account for the gain.

    Real worker earnings fell by another 0.8% during the month as the cost of living outpaced otherwise strong pay gains.

    U.S. Inflation Eased in April to 8.3% Annual Rate

    Inflation rate fell for first time in eight months as energy prices moderated

    U.S. consumer inflation eased in April to an 8.3% annual rate, taking a slight edge off the steepest run of price increases in four decades as energy prices moderated.

    The Labor Department’s consumer-price index reading last month marked the first decline in eight months, down from an 8.5% annual rate in March. The CPI measures what consumers pay for goods and services.
