    General inflation is such a tiny part of oil price fluctuations.

    For instance, the Libyan revolution caused an oil price spike right in the middle of the almost-double-dip-recession in 2011.

    Oil prices, in particular, are especially unmoored from general inflation.  That's why they don't include fuel prices in general inflation calculations.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
