Since the MSM only reports gas prices when they are declining, I wanted to provide some facts. I noticed that the gas station near my house has had a 10 cent jump in prices in the last 5 days. It seems prices are again on the rise. As you can see from this 3 year chart, prices ebb and flow. They ebb and flow in a steady upwards trajectory. National gas prices are up 5% since the beginning of the year, up 25% from 2 years ago, and up 36% from three years ago. And Bernanke and his Fed lackeys have the balls to declare inflation under control. We now have food prices up 30% YTD and poised to go much higher. We have gas prices rising while we are in recession. And the Federal Reserve has the gall to say that inflation is dropping. Before they hung their hat on the CPI going down because Owners Equivalent Rent was dropping. Rent costs are soaring at an annual rate over 5%. WTF. What exactly is going down in price other than our real wages? Is your locality reducing your property taxes and fees? Is school tuition going down? How stupid do the oligarchs think we are?
