Yesterday was the laughable PPI joke. Today we have the Consumer Price Index. Here is the chart from the BLS showing ZERO inflation in January, after ZERO inflation in December, and DEFLATION in November. Does that match what you see in the real world?
Now for the most ridiculous example of government propaganda ever published. According the drones at the BLS gasoline prices fell 3.0% in January after falling 1.9% in December. So, according to your beloved government scumbag data manipulators gasoline prices have fallen 4.9% in the last two months. Have you stopped by a gas station in the last two months? The chart below the BLS Bullshit chart shows that gasoline prices on January 1 were $3.27 per gallon. On January 31 gasoline prices were $3.40 per gallon. For the math challenged, gasoline prices rose 4.0% in January for people who actually fill up their gas tanks. They have risen another 9.7% in the 1st 21 days of February. I can’t wait to see how much the BLS says gas prices dropped in February.
The MSM will dutifully report this drivel to the ignorant masses without question, because it is their duty. There is no inflation because the government says so.
