WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Consumer prices jumped at the sharpest rate in more than a quarter century during June, and consumers coping with soaring costs received their smallest income gain in a year, the government said on Monday.



The Commerce Department said personal incomes edged up 0.1 percent after rising 1.8 percent in May. June's rise was the smallest since April 2007, when income was flat.

On a year-over-year basis, prices rose 4.1 percent in June, up from 3.5 percent in May, for the biggest annual gain since May 1991.

Nazi Pelosi won't allow us to drill for oil so the poor people have to choose between gas or food. or gas or a new tv or gas or new clothes or gas or paying their taxes :o . The poor who don't burn coal will also have to choose between all of the above and heating their homes this winter. :mad2: :no1: I have an idea, let's go down to Washington D.C. to protest drilling and building a new refinery. Paris Hilton probably doesn't know what oil is let alone what it costs. Al Gore can afford to fly around the country in a private jet. Nazi pelosi made her fortune thru Halliburton. and then sold out.and now can conveniently demonise oil after she became a multi millionare. :devil:

Why aren't the oil company's already drilling the vast known reserves that they already have leases for? (I'll answer that :lol: )

Because they want to keep inventory down & prices high....Don't you get it??

Would you upset the apple cart if you were making the greatest windfall profits in history? :mad:
(In case you haven't heard, oil men have been running this country, unchecked for the last eight years & look around you!!)


BTW.....I'll see your :devil: & raise you :devil: :devil:.....& I take personal offense at your use of the word "Demonise"!!!.....Some of my best friends are Demons!
