8. Commodity inflation
does not necessarily transfer to retail inflation, in fact the correlation is rather low between commodity inflation and CPI.

But I agree with you that consumer inflation is gaining significant traction. What will be interesting to see is if it does indeed hit a tipping point and really take off in the next few months, will the Fed hike in an election year?

I don't see the tipping point coming, but there's a lot I haven't seen coming.
