twitter WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumers paid more for food and gas last month, although inflation outside those volatile categories was tame.

[...] economists expect price increases to moderate as weak growth lowers commodity prices.

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