    (CNN) Inflation's temperature came down a little bit more last month, but the Federal Reserve's campaign to bring down high prices has grown even more complex in recent days.

    The Consumer Price Index, a closely watched gauge of inflation, showed that annual price increases continued to slow in February, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Tuesday.

    CPI measured 6% for the year ended in February, down from January's 6.4% and in line with economists' expectations.

    It's the eighth consecutive month that the annual rate has declined and marks the lowest level since September 2021.

    "Inflation has peaked, but it hasn't gone into hibernation," said Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst for Bankrate.

    I thought you were smarter than this. Inflation isn't a real thing.

    “No more drilling. There is no more drilling,” Biden snapped at a young woman in the crowd. “I haven’t formed any new drilling.”

    “There are at least five more years of offshore drilling,” the woman shouted back. “— in the Atlantic or the Pacific but in the Antarctic and off the gulf of New Mexico.”

    “That was before I was president,” Biden responded. “We’re trying to work on that and get that done.”

    if Nixon is to blame for Carter's inflation, why did the inflation that existed under Nixon go down before Carter was elected and then start to go up again after his election?.......

    Fucking idiot Trump jizz guzzler bullshit ^^^^

    Trump's boyfriend Vlad The (Orange Asshole) Impaler had more to do with increased fuel costs and the ripple effect that it caused worldwide, than some political remarks, you fucking simple-minded Bible thumper jackass.

    Throw in a worldwide pandemic that interrupted supply lines which caused shortages and together they are so obviously the culprit, that only a lowlife, lying, right-wing Trump dick sucking fake Xtian retard like you would try to claim Biden and his policies were to blame.

    But I understand how you and your little group of gay republican propaganda faggots aka the "Victory Girls" get aroused by spouting off lies about Biden, after which you stroke and spout all over each other.

    So go ahead and knock yourselves out, "girls".

    The economy goes up and down in cycles, you semi-literate Bible sucker.

    It often times takes years for the effects of the economic policies of elected officials to show their effects in the economy.

    If you had half the brain you think you have, or if you weren't such a dedicated right-wing liar, you'd have known that.

    Nixon is to blame for Nixon's inflation. You keep trying to blame inflation that started long before Carter on Carter.

    Can you give us a reason to blame Carter for Nixon's inflation?

    Biden had been in office just over one year when Putin invaded Ukraine.

    COVID started on Trump's watch and preceded Biden's inauguration by one year.

    Had Trump taken decisive action against it, it very likely would not have become the health crisis that it became.

    Maybe tens of thousands fewer people would have died, and the economy would not have been affected to the degree that it was.

    Unfortunately, Trump was more interested in his poll numbers and getting reelected than he was in doing his job as President.

    So he sat on his thumb, called the pandemic "fake news" and did nothing until after the horse was out of the barn.

    All to make his brainwashed zombie cult followers happy.

    What an Einstooge you must be.

    So Operation Warpspeed was taking no action ffs, you're an imbecile! There is absolutely no way that Biden would have done that, he'd have just handed everything over to the CDC and FDA.
