From the Calculated Risk Blog
CPI-W could be very volatile this year because of energy prices, but if the current level holds, COLA would be around 3.5% for next year (the current 222.954 divided by the Q3 2008 level of 215.495).
This is still early - and oil and gasoline prices are falling - but it appears that COLA will increase this year.
