Highlights
Oil prices may be up this month but not inflation expectations among businesses which fell a sizable 2 tenths to 1.9 percent in April for the lowest reading since October. Inflation expectations among consumers have also been falling, pointing to limited expectations for overall economic growth and supporting Federal Reserve forecasts that core inflation will continue to remain contained.

Definition
The Atlanta Fed's Business Inflation Expectations survey provides a monthly measure of year-ahead inflation expectations and inflation uncertainty from the perspective of firms. The survey also provides a monthly gauge of firms' current sales, profit margins, and unit cost changes.  Why Investors Care
