U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics: "CPI Inflation Calculator"

Go to the CPI Inflation Calculator and perform two calculations:

  1. Compute what a pair of denim jeans cost the year you were born, if they cost $80 today.
  2. Compute what a car cost the year you were born, if it is selling for $23,000 today.

Please feel free to explore the inflation rate of interest by performing additional calculations on this calculator.
