On top of that, gas prices recently reached an extraordinary high in Europe and high energy prices are pushing up manufacturing cost. Demand for both energy and goods is predicted to remain strong due to high purchase power that is fuelled by low unemployment rates and a surplus of savings, putting extra pressure on scarce supplies. In addition, inflation rates are at an unprecedented level and central banks are fighting inflation by increasing base interest rates.
