This paper analyzes the relationship between the price producer index and the price consumer index across country members of the Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) area, during the period 1957:01 to 2011:04. In so doing, we test for the existence of causality and unit root in the series analyzed in this research. The results suggest that the causality between these index runs in both directions, namely from producer prices to consumer prices, and vice versa. Yet, both prices contain useful information contributing to predict the behavior of each other.
