This edition analyses the impact of increasing commodity prices, with a particular focus on energy prices, from three different angles. First, it studies inflation divergence in the euro area inflation, driven by the external shocks but also by internal factors.. Second, it discusses the factors driving pass-through of wholesale energy prices to the retail market and how it has diverged across euro area countries. Finally, the issue discusses the impact of the increase in energy costs on firm’s profitability.
