Consumers paid more for food, gas in September

share: digg facebook twitter WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumers paid more for food and gas last month, although inflation outside those volatile categories was tame. Excluding food and energy, so-called core prices increased 0.1 percent, the smallest rise since March. [...] economists expect price increases to moderate as weak growth lowers commodity prices. A surge in gas prices drove wholesale costs up 0.8 percent in September, the government said Tuesday.

Senh: Great. Now that people are making less or unemployed, they have to pay more for necessities.
