Inflation rises 7.5% over the past year, even more than expected and the highest since 1982

Consumer prices in January surged more than expected over the past 12 months, indicating a worsening outlook for inflation and cementing the likelihood of substantial interest rate hikes this year.
The consumer price index, which measures the costs of dozens of everyday consumer goods, rose 7.5% compared to a year ago, the Labor Department reported Thursday.
That compared to Dow Jones estimates of 7.2% for the closely watched inflation gauge. It was the highest reading since February 1982.
Stripping out volatile gas and grocery costs, the CPI increased 6%, compared to the estimate of 5.9%.
Of course, the Former 18 Wheeler Driver isn't responsible for all of this. But, his weak brained moral leadership is killing his approval rating...and Dem hopes for the fall.
Don't blame me. I voted for Trump.
