Glad to see some mention of this topic.
Inflation doesn't get much press these days, not compared to the coverage it recieved during the last gas 'crisis'. Back then, the
inflation numbers were dramatically announced every day, now they just seem to get shrugged off for the most part.
In the last couple of weeks alone, the price of groceries has jumped quite noticeably, and will likely do so again. Between the costs of transport
and losses due to the storms, it's inevitable. When the costs of heating are figured into the next inflation numbers, there's no telling how much
higher they could go.
