SoCal Gas, Clothing Prices Jump More Than US Average In Sept.

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Is your wallet feeling a bit lighter lately?

That might be due to prices for the most popular consumer goods in Southern California going up by about .5 percent in September from August.

The latest Consumer Price Index figures from the government show that number is slightly higher than the national rate.

“The main contributing factor that influenced the increase in September were higher prices for gasoline and apparel,” said David Kong of the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Prices jumped in the Los Angeles area by 3.1 percent in September compared to the same time last year — a number still lower than the national average of 3.9 percent.

    We’re no longer the home of the brave, land of the free.
    It’s for the rich, buy the rich and of the rich, with liberty and justice for all that can afford a good Jewish lawyer or one of their Christian concubines or but goys they made rich for helping them take over by betraying their own people!
