"The rise suggests that demand for commodities from emerging economies remains strong, in spite of the US slowdown, fuelling fears that global inflation will continue to rise. The rise -- an average 85 per cent -- surpasses the record increase of 71.5 per cent agreed in 2005, when the commodities? boom gathered pace.

"Commodity-led inflation risks appear to be growing," said Tobias Levkovich, Citi chief strategist."

Goes to show that reporters have no clue how the commodities market works because speculators do not have control over the price of things like oil, iron, corn, they simply are playing the stock market on what they might cost in the future.
