The number will be released Wednesday, April 16th at 8:30am. Govt. CPI release: 0.5% Actual CPI: 0.9% Manipulated: Yes If your actual CPI is higher than the CPI release you obviously think the number is manipulated. There is no way to prove this but lets see what everyone thinks. Person the closest to the actual number gets a cookie. I am going to LMAO if we get another BS 0.0% number.
