It is B. Parallelizm.

A and B are real headache but not C. Because one part of the sentence (in C it is Verb tense) must be parallel to the other- in the 1-st part Present continuous is used that's why you can't use HAVE (instead ARE must be used) in the 2-nd part HAVE doesn't have referent.

A is out because Consumer and Producer Prices cannot be parallel to Rising interest rates.

(A) Similar to rising interest rates, consumer and producer prices have been rising. => needs "have also been"
(B) Consumer and producer prices have been rising, as have interest rates.
(C) As interest rates are rising, so have consumer and producer prices. => need "are"
(D) Consumer and producer prices have been rising, like interest rates do. => changes meaning / wrong tense
(E) Consumer and producer prices, as interest rates, have been rising. => needs "as well as"

I go with B for the above reasons !!

Is my analysis correct ??

A is out because Consumer and Producer Prices cannot be parallel to Rising interest rates.

why cant rising prices be parallel to rising interest rates ??

Clear B.

A ---> Not parallel
C--->Needs "Are"
D ---->"Like interest rated do" changes the meaning
E ---->"like "is needed instead of "as"

Consumer and producer prices have been rising, as have interest rates.

Can someone elaborate on the structure of this sentence? Is it IC/DC?
