I'm giving it less time than that.
The housing market is in free fall still and it is the metric that is depressing the true rate of inflation in the CPI. It just goes to show what a crock the CPI is. CPI doesn't include food and fuel. If you take out housing and put in food and fuel you'd get a number closer to 9-10% inflation.edit on 12-4-2011 by projectvxn because: (no reason given)

Wow... how much was the ball?! Anyway, I have never thought of it like that. I don't think I have gone to the store to get food for one specific meal. My wife and I usually plan out a week in advance what we will eat and then go get it all at once. It seems to me that it may have been cheaper to go out for a steak dinner than to cook it yourself and that is very disturbing. I remember when eating at home was a way to actually save money, but it seems that isn't the case anymore.
