    CPI doesn't include energy of food?

    Absolutely true.

    The energy index rose a whopping 24.5 percent over the last 12 months, and the food index increased 2.4 percent.

    Economists were predicting a .4% month over month increase... in core CPI ( excluding food energy).... We actually got a .9% increase... That doesn't mean they were .5% off. It isn't .9% minus the .4 percent expected... they were off by more than 100%... inflation (CPI) was more than double what was expected.

    Used car prices increased 10.5 percent in June, month over month, compared to 7.3 percent in May and 10 percent in April. In annual terms, used car prices jumped a whopping 45.2 percent.

    Fake stories are hilarious.

    Aren't they.

    I'm surprised the national enquirer doesn't publish any of the crap.

    Beahahaha, its so cute that you think that translates to anything meaningful to anyone who wasnt already doing well. As if any new construction will ever make housing cheaper or lower existing rent

    Can't say I know a single guy I work with that's had anything backordered other than cosmetic aftermarket stuff that isn't needed. The only manufacturer not represented in that group is Freightliner so I couldn't say how they've been. Had to shut down a couple job sites for a day or two waiting for bolts twice though.

    The biggest problem around here is still a lack of mechanics. Every shop for the last 5 years has said the same thing, can't find mechanics who can pass both a drug test and a background check. I'm glad I cultivated a good relationship with a shop because it's saved my rear a few times by getting in when I probably shouldn't have been.

    A friend of mine blew a head gasket today on a 2016 Crapcadia. We're taking bets on how long it will take to get parts and get it all back together. It blew on a CAT engine with only 400,000 miles on it. Mechanic said he's never seen one blow on a CAT so soon.

    It happens more than you’d think if the liner height wasn’t set right.
