RPI falls below zero
« on: Apr 21, 2009, 10:02 »
"The headline rate of inflation, which includes mortgage payments, has fallen below zero for the first time in 50 years.

RPI now stands at -0.4 per cent - down from zero in February - showing the cost of living is actually getting cheaper."

Me too, pay more for Council tax, petrol, gas/leccy,  plus bread, butter, other groceries are extortionate still and prices aren't coming down, I'm on a fixed rate mortgage so that is the same and neither hubby or I will get a pay rise this year.

Who says it's getting cheaper?
