Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that the government doesn't count food & fuel when giving their inflation statistic, which is completely absurd.

I just read an article that stated, the prices of things (food, fuel and medical) Americans really need are skyrocketing while the cost of plasma televisions, computers, stereos, etc are free-falling. From my monthly grocery costs, I'd say that it is a safe assumption.
