In other words, the Y-axis variable is fixed, or constant, for any and all values of the X-axis variable.

COST-PUSH INFLATION: Inflation of the economy's average price level induced by decreases in aggregate supply that result from increases in production cost. This type of inflation occurs when the cost of using any of the four factors of production (labor, capital, land, or entrepreneurship) increases. In general, higher production cost means the economy simply can't continue to supply the same production at the same price level. If buyers want the production, they must pay higher prices. The higher cost "pushes" the price level higher. You might want to compare cost-push inflation with demand-pull inflation.
