We have†FIVE more months to go before new I-bonds inflation component rate will be set. † Damn you oil, you're making my I-bonds earn less! (probably, in five months) Maybe oil going down is a good thing for your i-bonds.
No matter how much oil falls, your i-bond rate will still be zero.† So lets hope for a dramatic decrease in inflation.
i.e. Inflation falls for the six month period at a rate of -2.00% then goes up the next six months at 1.00%. For the twelve month period you earned 1.00% on your I-bonds yet inflation fell 1.00% for that 12 month period.† Your I-bonds did not match inflation as they were designed, they beat inflation.†
