2022 Medal Winner Leaders
Cereal appears headed for the gold medal for sustained gains. It rose at least 0.8 percent every month this year. But it needs another good performance in December. Can it hold on?
Dairy is a strong favorite to win the gold and silver medals for the biggest month-over-month gains of 2.4 percent in April backed up up by an even bigger 2.6 percent in May.
Cereal rates to get the bronze medal for a 2.1 percent rise in June.

CPI Cools Significantly in November But Rent and Food Still Sharply Increasing
The CPI cooled in November but significant hot spots remain, notably shelter and food.
For more on the CPI, please see CPI Cools Significantly in November But Rent and Food Still Sharply Increasing
Apologies for the title. The CPI did not really cool. Rather, the year-over-year and month-over-month increases slowed. Shelter is significant. See link for details.
Many expected the cost of shelter to decline significantly, but I was not one of them.
