    The graphic doesn’t work for me. I use NoSccript to prevent malware install. Which of the 11 domains running scripts on this page is the one providing the graph? Thanks for everything else. The blog usually works fine.

    are you serious? inflation IS about 2% and yes food and gas are in the CPI. this is just neverending. the Fed looks at core CPI because CPI is more volatile. they don’t want to make rash moves and raise or lower rates due to what might be temporary price movements. food and gas are volatile. they could give false signals.
