Price Inflation

in the United States



What is Inflation?

Inflation is the devaluation of a currency through the increase in the amount of money circulating in society, resulting in the eventual rise in the price of goods.




How is Inflation Calculated? 

As inflation rises, every dollar decreases in value.

inflation

If the inflation rate is 2% a year, then an item 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 in doing what it does best: Destroying the Value of a Currency.

The Charts below are a Visualization of how, over the years, "Price Inflation" has affected everyone who lives in 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.
