The primary cause of the PPI is crude oil prices, both WTI and Brent. As the price of crude oil goes up, the PPI will go up.
Another cause is the price of natural gas (Henry Hub). As the price of natural gas goes up, the PPI will go up.
The Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar and Singapore Dollar also figure heavily in the causation of the PPI. As the AUD, CAD and SGD strengthen versus the U.S. dollar, the PPI will go up. One of the reasons these currencies are causes of the PPI is because they also figure heavily in the causation of crude oil prices.
