Thanks Nancy. I can certainly live without the food items on the list...pretty much do already (except for an occasional bit of dark chocolate...for medicinal purposes of course).

Great to know, for budgeting purposes. As Sandi C says "wages stay the same when you're retired, everything else goes up".
Thank You Nancy.

What's new. That $11.00 increase I got from Social Security is already gone - to SNAP and rent assistance. I lose every time we get an increase because I don't get to keep it. Other costs keep going up every year, not just gas. Don't drive, no car, no license, no need for savings there.

Food prices have been going up for the last five years, since the first big surge in gas prices. Prices go up, they never seem to go down. I don't begrudge the stamp increase in price. The postal service is still self supporting and has had to fight Congress to stay in business.

I hope assistance for low income families and students and disabled people increase with these price increases. And i hope people start getting smarter since demand controls supply if people live more conservatively prices will go down.

Noted. Okey dokey; a bit of a surprise at a couple of them, but so goes capitalism with a confused Congress.
