Nigeria is still   largely  dependent on  crude  oil to  satisfy  its oil  needs   since crude  oil   is animportant  part  of her economy. This  dependency on crude oil triggers most macroeconomicindicators such as inflation to react to fluctuations in the world price of oil, making the economyvulnerable to fluctuations in the world oil price. This study therefore employs Auto RegressiveDistributive Lag analysis to examine the effects of oil price fluctuations on inflation in Nigeriausing   monthly   data   from   January   2010   to   December   2017.   Unlike  studies   conducted   ondeveloped countries, this study is done for Nigeria as a developing nation.This study aimed at examining the  effect of oil price fluctuations on inflation in Nigeria. Toachieve this aim, three specific objectives were examined. This study first examines the trend ofoil price fluctuations and inflation. The next objective was to examine the short run effects of oilprice fluctuations on inflation. Lastly, the third objective was to examine the long run effects ofoil price fluctuations on inflation.The result indicates a positive effect of oil price on inflation in the short run and a negative effectin the long run. This study reveals that in Nigeria as a developing country, oil price increaseresults in higher inflation directly.To reduce inflationary pressure in Nigeria, government should diversify the economy and alsofind a stable exchange rate system.
