The strong dollar can make imports cheaper, which reduces inflation and cost of living. It allows everyone to buy more with the same amount of money. On the other hand, if the dollar’s value reduces, import prices go higher. You must buy groceries at the more expensive price, especially imported products. Unfortunately, this could lead to inflation.
When the dollar rises in value against other currencies, the price of gas will decrease. More than 70% gas price depends on the oil price. Oil contracts are sold in US dollar. Saudi Arabia sells most of the world’s oil. When the dollar rises, Saudi Arabia’s imports will become cheaper.
