Abstract

Market is a complex mechanism; a regulator which, using the logic of competition and price, balances the supply and demand for products and services. In quantitative terms, the price is an expression of a seller’s willingness to trade goods or services for their cash equivalent, and at the same time a customer’s willingness to pay this amount of money in exchange for acceptable goods or services. The economic importance of the price of a product is not the same for all products. The prices of some products are more important for the functioning of the entire economy than the prices of other products. Such are the prices of crude oil and petroleum products because they have a strong and direct impact on the pricing of other products and services, because petroleum products are inputs in almost every manufacturing process. This paper attempts to establish the correlation between changes in the prices of oil and petroleum products and the prices of consumer goods. The main hypothesis is that an increase, or a decrease, in crude oil and petroleum product prices directly and automatically increases, or decreases, the prices of consumer goods. The paper explores the regularity and patterns that appear between changes in the prices of petroleum products and the prices of consumer goods in Bosnia and Herzegovina for the period from 2008 to 2014.
