Inflation dropped for a 12th straight month in June, as flat grocery prices partly offset a rebound in gasoline costs and still-hefty rent hikes, USA Today reports.

Consumer prices overall increased 3 percent from a year earlier, down a percent from the rise the previous month, according to the Labor Department’s consumer price index for June.

USA Today reported that In a note to its clients, Contingent Macro Research said, “Overall, while pockets of core price pressures remain, critical categories of inflation are slowly cooling.”

Just a year ago, U.S. inflation hit a 40-year high of 9.1 percent; a series of interest rate hikes since then by the Federal Reserve Board has helped tamp that number down.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
