Prices for many items costing less

The consumer price index — a measure of the cost of goods and services — fell for the third straight month in June, approaching a Depression-era record of four months in a row.

The index fell a tenth of a percent from May, according to federal data released Friday.

The decline was due to lower gas prices and stable prices on food, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report.

In the short term, that means people are paying less. In the long term, it could spell trouble, researchers say.

Texas, the new Florida, lures seniors with sun, low cost living

After trying out Atlanta, Miami and Pasadena, Calif., Lilian Junco decided this was the place to retire. Being near her son was the first attraction, but soon she was drawn in by the same combination of features that has lured tens of thousands of others from out of state -- Gulf Coast living, plus super-low costs.

With some of the country's cheapest prices for housing, gas and food, no state income tax and one of the most resilient economies in the nation, Galveston and other parts of the Lone Star state are emerging as the new Florida.

For Florida, 'end of an era' of population growth

FORT LAUDERDALE — Cruise up coastal highway A1A. Take in the sea breeze, the sand and surf shimmering in the sun, the palm trees swaying beside luxury high-rise hotels, shops and cafes. The idyllic image helps explain why millions have come to Florida to play, and millions have come back to stay.

Florida’s population loss is Alabama’s gain

Lillian Vickers doesn’t have to think very long about why she left Florida.

“Three hurricanes in 15 months. It got to be too much,” said Vickers, who relocated to Dothan from Okeechobee, Fla., in October 2006.

How she and her husband — and the family dog — came here, of all places, had to do with proximity. Vickers has family in Tallahassee and a niece in Enterprise, and because her husband is retired military, they liked being close to Fort Rucker.
