Inflation slowing in the West

The latest CPI indexes for the West show inflation slowing: evidently the Fed has accomplished the task it set for itself (unless you think Seattle is a city, in which case they are still in trouble -- of course, that might have other causes -- I understand that coffee has gotten more expensive).

How much coffee gets drunk, anyway? I'd guess that there are differences based on where you live, but it seems that the anuual numbers are hidden behind tight security.

I'm sure the Department of Homeland Security encourages this. After all, if the terrorists get our coffee, how will we wake up in the morning?
