Normally during hard economic times or recession, prices of oil go down. This time however, prices of oil continue to rise causing rise in prices. This cause a double whammy on people already suffering from mortgage foreclosures and hard economic times. So now we are seeing both inflation and recession happening at the same time (stagflation). This could cause a problem for U.S. government fiscal manager. They continue to inject cash to help the bank stave off problems caused by subprime mortgage. But this could only worsen the inflation and pose a risk of it getting out of control which could lead to hyperinflation (where prices skyrocket in a short period of time). This could happen while people are struggling financially.
