knickers in a knot

The new Australian federal government has stuck by its election promise to conduct an ACCC inquiry into grocery retailing in Australia owing to inordinate inflation in grocery prices - unaligned to our national consumer price index (CPI) and grocery price movements in other, developed countries.

Meantime, spare a thought for people in Zimbabwe, where inflation for food and non-alcoholic beverages for the year ending January 2008 has been 105,428.0 % as reported in the Sydney Morning Herald.

That sucks for the Zimbabwe people. But I am glad they are looking into the cost of our ever price rising groceries.
