I hate all this anus shit about core CPI and other adjustments. I don't care if it's volitale... just make it a rolling 12 month average or some shit. It's idiotic to exclude food and energy. For some people 100% of their income goes toward food, energy, and housing. And don't even get me started on housing. right, nuff with the rant. Does anyone know of a site independent of the government which tracks inflation. Cause we all know the governments' figures are doctored anyway. True inflation is anywhere from 4 to 6% annually by my guess.
