The misinformation of inflation statistics

This is looking at price changes since 2000 and goes out to 2014.  A barrel of oil has plunged since this chart was made (still up 100 percent from 2000).  Ironically the savings aren’t passed to consumers since a gallon of gas is still expensive.  The average home price is up more than 50 percent.  Average monthly rent is up more than 40 percent.  That new car is up more than 55 percent.  Healthcare spending is up 100 percent. Yet the overall CPI rate is up 39 percent.  You see how this misses out on the true changes in the market?”

2000 to present
