Why haven't consumer goods taken the same price drop as gasoline?

Hard not to notice that prices of groceries and retail goods continue to climb even though crude oil has virtually bottomed out.

Should we blame corporations and their retail outlets? Can an economist explain this?

Emptying my mind of conventional thought
Throwing away the things that I bought
I travel and leave this city behind
Chasing a truth, as yet undefined

And I shall not fall
For I have nothing
Which is all
