The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) decreased 0.3 percent in March on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.
Some of that was gas went down (it's been rising since that data was collected), but
The index for all items less food and energy fell 0.1 percent in March, its first decline since January 2010.
Of course, that month was still a Great Recession month, despite what some BLS wonks have said. Falling prices, aka Defeat is in Dee Flation, are the canary in the coal mine keeling over just before it blows up. Welcome to Trump Crater, where the Billionaire Boys get richer and the poor die sooner. The imploding Middle Class (what's left of it) doesn't have lots o moolah to push up prices. If that all sounds like you've read that here before. Well, you have.
