Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Examples of price inelastic goods are petrol and water. For these goods, a change in the price of the item leads to a lower or no change in the demand of the item.

Examples of price elastic goods are Shell petrol and bread of a given company. Petrol is general price inelastic but in this case, if a given petrol station, like Shell increases its price alone, then customer will shift to the other petrol stations. This is the same case to the bread of a given company. Price elastic goods are those whose demand changes proportionately or even higher than the change in the change in their prices.
