Inflation. Inflation is the cause of rising prices. It is a vicious circle. Prices of goods and services increase, THey say fuel prices have gone up that is why transport cost has gone up. Then working community demand additonal increase in salaries. It is done. With greater purchasing power people chase goods and prices go up due to increase in the demand and decrease in supply.
