Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Oclobor 15, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - I Seasonal Drop In Food Prices Responsible September Consumer Price Index Shows Decline OTTAWA (CP) - The consumer price index declined in September because of a seasonal drop in food prices. Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Wednesday that the September index was 130.2 points compared with 130.5 in both July and August and 126.6 in September, 1969. The index, a measurement of retail-price changes for a broad range of goods and services, stood 2.8 per cent ahead of its position a year ago, the same rate of annual advance registered in August, Prices had been running ahead at a rate of five per cent or more annually late last year and in the first part of this year. The index, which covers price changes for hundreds of items from groceries, shelter and clothing to perfume and dental bills, is based on 100 points for 1961 prices. It thus indicates roughly that a $10 shopping list in 1961 had inflated to $12.66 in September, 1969, was up to $13.05 in July and August and fell back to $13.02 last month. The decline of one-fifth of one per cent between August and September repeated the pattern of a year earlier, when harvest-time reductions in food prices also made an impact. Generally, however, the prica index has followed a sharp upward trend during the last few years until just recently. It fell fractionally last May, advanced in June and July and held steady in August.
