Supply Chain Graphic of the Week: US Wholesale Prices have Been Up in a Straight Line for Two Years



Remarkable Increase in Inflation since Early in the Pandemic


June 16, 2022


We all know inflation is soaring, confirmed again this week, with a year-over-year rise in wholesale prices of a scary 10.8%, as measured by the Producer Price Index (PPI).


That was about the same as the 10.9% rise in April, in numbers not seen in 40 years.


But this has been building for some time - since a few months into rhe pandemic in Q2 2020, as seen in the graphic below:

As can be seen, on a year-over-year basis each month, the graph goes almost staight up since shortly after the start of the pandemic.


How long will it last is the question of the day - and is the only solutuion a recession?
