MENDOZA (QPJ).- La inflación sigue carcomiendo cada vez más los bolsillos de los argentinos. En coincidencia con el incremento de 1.000 pesos de la canasta básica total en el último año, Coca Cola volvió a aumentar sus gaseosas, esta vez la de 500 ml, pasando a costar ahora 4,5 pesos. De este modo genera una confusión en los consumidores, ya que hace un año con ese mismo precio uno podía llegar a comprar la de litro y medio.

Pese a todos estos aumentos que empobrecen más a la clase media argentina, la presidenta Cristina Kirchner sigue negando esta realidad inflacionaria en el país y pese a ello se mantiene favorita para las elecciones de octubre.
