It sure seems like everything is going up in price, doesn’t it? Everything, well, except for silver, that is, which is down approximately five percent, year-to-date. In fact, just today, the US Government’s official Consumer Price Index was released for December 2020, and the numbers are starting to show what many people have been feeling all along: Rising prices.
Here are just a few of the highlights from today’s inflation report:
Food prices have risen 3.9% over the past year.
Used car and truck prices have risen 10% over the past year.
Gasoline prices have risen over 12% in just the last month.
We can likely all agree, the last year 2020 was off the charts strange. Well, the calendar year has changed, but the weirdo event trend has not. Just like much in our modern-day lives, the bottom line truth about what happened in the storming of the US capital building this past Wednesday, January 6th, will likely never be known nor understood fully. Reportedly five people died from this may lay, the FBI is now on manhunts for those involved. Some lawmakers call for President Trump to be impeached and launched from his office before the coming Jan 20th inauguration of Joe Biden.
