Is Ethereum becoming inflationary again?
Yes, it is, and that's because Ethereum fees, which are supposed to burn ethers, are everywhere but not on Ethereum: its own L2s (Arbitrum, Polygon, etc.) and EVM competitors (BNB, Avalanche C, etc.)

The critical problem with Ethereum is that its future supply is unknown, unpredictable, and potentially inflationary.
For Ethereum to be deflationary, tx fees must be high which means it must fail to scale and tx volume must not move to other crypto securities like Solana. pic.twitter.com/dITZ7RfSf6
