#1 "The lower prices for gasoline offset price increases in food and housing, the bureau stated."

Gas is still +/- $1.20 higher in my neck of the woods, than it was in 2020, which is about a 57.91% increase.

Tell you what Nancy P., I just want a SSA / SSD COLA increase equal to the Congressional Pay Raise of March 2022 "a 21 percent increase — according to the House Appropriations Committee summary."

#3 Stubborn. After Democrats; DC just passed the Make Bigger Inflation Act, we may end up wishing for a stubborn 8.5%.

#4 I just hope that there aren't premature declarations of victory followed by an easing off that will make inflation much worse. See 1975-82.

#5 Really, Joe? President massages July's inflation figures and says US experienced ZERO inflation when in fact it stood at 8.5%: Gas prices drop but food and rent costs soar for American families

#6 Just wait until the real food shortages show up. Warehouses are just now starting to empty, so by Q4 we will see some real bare shelves. Later meat will be hard to come by as herds are now being culled and there will be later by Q1 2023.

Revolutions and violent civil disorder have reliably happened when food jumps over 20% rise in cost quickly. The US is just now passing that with shortages coming. How long before people start burning down areas, rioting over it and shooting each other?
