You don't mean $12!!!! Read your link again.

Tim, the link reflects todays price changes. They are continually changing during the day. The $12 is yesterdays closing change.

Is the end of deflation over? Got sugar, coffee, tea, tires, shoes, clothing, the road is getting very rocky. So much for Bill Clinton's ratings.....

Sorry, but you meant $0.12 ----- 12 cents a bushel.

First, neither commodity is selling anywhere near $12 a bushel. Second, the trading limits are much less than this.

Todays bean quote reads: 4972 -16

That is $4.972 a bushel, down $0.16 a bushel. So, if it went up 12 cents yesterday and is down 16 cents today, this isn't a strong rally for a commodity that sold at over $8 last year.

hey, even I slipped a decimal point. the $4.972 is correct, the -16 is down $0.016, or 1.6 cents

Trader Vic, I stand corrected, Up 0.12 a bushel yesterday. Your not Vic Speranzo are you?

CNN said that the Chevron fire caused an overnight price spike in Bay area gas prices.

-- Puddintame (, March 26, 1999.

Bay Area, my butt! I live in TX where gas prices are notoriously cheap, and filling up the van this morning I was SHOCKED to see the 87 octane cheapo stuff I fill up on was up to $ 1.03 a gallon!!!!!


What the HEY! We were enjoying gas prices as low as .73 a gallon literally for MONTHS...

what happened?

-- Preparing (, March 26, 1999.

Two weeks ago I paid $1.19 for diesel, yesterday I paid $1.39, today the sign changed to $1.49. Can we say inflation? Glad I bought my supplies when goods were cheap. Now it will be out of reach for many who are "newbies," to plan and purchase. Isn't this what several of us Yourdonites predicted 6 months ago? I was reminded on this forum many times that we were in a deflationary period, well things turn around real fast don't they? Remember to store lots and lots of water.
