Price Inflation

in the United States




What is Inflation?

"The increase in the quantity of money" which results in a devaluation of the currency and the eventual rise in the price of goods.

How is Inflation Calculated?  As inflation rises, every dollar decreases in value.

If the inflation rate is 2% a year, then a pack of gum that sells for $1.00 at the beginning of the year, will cost $1.02 by the end of that year.

Inflation often goes unnoticed at doing what it does best; Destroying the Value of Your Money.

The Charts below, are a Visualization of how over the years "Price Inflation" has affected everyone who lives the United States, in one way or another.



*Important Note: The prices displayed on all of these Charts are calculated with the average price paid in the United States and are not specific to any brand or region of the United States.
