Inflation in the USA

Here’s an excellent graphic from the New York Times on how they measure inflation in the USA. They also use a Consumer Price Index and measure 84,000 prices in 200 categories every month. You can see from the Pie Chart that TV sets recorded the biggest price fall from March 2007 to March 2008.

Can you find the percentage change in the price of Fuel Oil?
