Overall Midwest consumer prices rose, but transportation, fuel costs dropped
from The Elkhart Truth
Although natural gas, clothes, housing and medical care all cost Midwesterners at least 2 percent more in August than a year ago, the good news is that gasoline cost 5.3 percent less, and the non-gasoline cost of transportation was down 1.3 percent over the same period. That's according to information compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
