Quote:
Biden's sixth quarter in office, spanning April 20 through July 19, recently ended. During this time, an average of 40% of Americans approved of the job he was doing as president. No president elected to his first term has had a lower sixth-quarter average than Biden


But, the price of gas has dropped the fastest in over a decade.

You gotta wonder about those 40% that like the job he's doing.

Maybe they ask people who cross the border illegally.

so what are we thinking?

it was over $1.20 after 5 of the 6 months

gas prices have declined for 50 straight days, but it seems food/energy costs continue to rise...

ill guess $1.32 an hour...

I feel sorry for people that retired at the end of last year. They'd be looking at pretty good COLAs for the next couple years. Two more years like this and we're up 25%.

From Nalc: 2023 Retiree COLAs Projection: 9.0% as of July 2022.

Not sure how much difference you'd see.

My doctor thought I had sleep apnea earlier this year. Had to wear a monitor for 12 hours. Luckily I could do it at home. Lots of wires. PITA.
