 Increases in the indexes for shelter and for used cars and trucks were the largest contributors to the seasonally adjusted all items increase. The food index also contributed, although it increased less than in recent months, rising 0.5 percent in December. The energy index declined in December, ending a long series of increases; it fell 0.4 percent as the indexes for gasoline and natural gas both decreased.

Al momento il processo inflattivo colpisce principalmente i prodotti energetici.

Tuttavia i loro rincari si ripercuotono su di un gran numero di beni e servizi che non potrebbero essere espletati senza il loro uso: si pensi soltanto alla distribuzione capillare, che dipende totalmente dal trasporto gommato.

Il fenomeno inoltre è in crescita: non ci si stupisca quindi se, senza interventi adeguati, a fine anno abbia superato il 10%.

In fondo, l’inflazione è l’unica tassa veramente democratica, che colpisce tutti i cittadini senza distinzione alcuna.
