Used to determine the Inflation Rate: The percent prices change from month to month. As the inflation rate goes up, purchasing power goes down.
Purchasing Power Calculating Inflation Rate: Calculating Inflation Rate: Inflation Rate = (New – Old) Old In January the price of gasoline was $2.98 per gallon. At the end of September the price of gasoline was $3.58 per gallon. What was the inflation rate for gasoline? ($3.58 – $2.98) / $2.98 ($3.58 – $2.98) / $2.98 $0.60 / $2.98 $0.60 / $2.98 0.2013423 0.2013423 20.1% 20.1%
