TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. It’s the latest sign that price pressures are waning in the face of high interest rates and moderating economic growth. Excluding volatile food and energy costs, increases in so-called core prices also slowed. They rose just 0.2% from September to October, down from a 0.3% increase the previous month. Compared with 12 months ago, core prices rose 3.5%, below the 3.7% year-over-year increase in September.
VERBATIM: Prices were unchanged from September to October, down from a 0.4% rise the previous month. Compared with a year ago, prices rose 3% in October, below the 3.4% annual rate in September. It was the lowest year-over-year inflation rate in more than 2 1/2 years.

Kissinger was both reviled and revered, drawing harsh criticism and earning a Nobel Peace Prize.

This year, they fall to number three — behind veterans organizations and non-profit hospitals. Religious groups are still the most trusted by Americans in their 60’s and up, however, suggesting that younger people have less trust in those institutions than their parents and grandparents.
