>> However, inflation is a personal thing. For example, the cost of milk has gone up about 40-50% this past year. But if you're lactose intolerant, you're not buying milk anyway. Cost of college up 25% but you don't have kids/nieces/nephews to take care of, no problem. <<

This is true...but I don't know *anyone* who is experiencing the low rate of inflation the government is reporting.
