Laura Franks Bexley Consumer Price Index for the 2d quarter 2014

Laura Franks reports the Bexley Consumer Price Index as of Second Quarter, 2014.

The Bexley CPI reports on the aggregate prices paid for a uniform basket of merchandise purchased at retail in Bexley and nearby retail stores.

The Bexley CPI measures the change of prices for ordinary retail purchases made by Bexley residents.

The Bexley Consumer Price Index can be compared to the price changes reported by the US Department of Labor.  The comparison can provide useful information for Bexley consumers about local price changes compared to price changes in other parts of the United States.

For the Second Quarter, 2014, the total cost of the standard market basket was $20.89.  Compared to the total market basket for the First Quarter, 2014, ($20.44) this is a $0.45 increase or stated as a percentage, a 2.5% increase.  Year-to-year comparison for the Second Quarters, 2013 and 2014 are $21.43 for 2013 and $20.89 for 2014, or a decrease of 0.54%.  As a year-over-year comparison, this is a  0.56% decrease.

Nothing exciting.

Looking at price changes for specific market-basket items, one home-office item showed a quarter-to-quarter decline of $0.58 and a common paper item showed an increase of $1.00 in its price.  This increase was attributable to an in-store coupon offered in the First Quarter 2013.

This has been a wonderful Spring in Bexley and retail prices in this little municipality are pretty stable.
