NEW YORK (AP) — Inflation is painfully high, but this hopefully is close to as bad as it gets.

Supply-chain problems should ease, among other things. Households could even see relief in some areas within weeks. Prices have dropped on global markets for crude oil and natural gas, which is filtering into lower pump and home-heating prices for regular people. But many variables remain, such as the course of the pandemic, which can alter where inflation heads from here.
