Fun Inflation Calculator - A dollar just ain't what it used to be.

http://www.dollartimes.com/calculators/inflation.htm

$1.00 in 1914 had the same buying power as $22.57 in 2012.

NOTE: The site determines the value of a dollar using the Consumer Price Index, which excludes the 2 most important consumer purchases (food and energy) but it's still interesting to see how the US keeps destroying the value of its own currency each year. Of course the bogus CPI also calculates an unrealistic average inflation number too, but fudging numbers and lying are 2 things the Government does remarkably well.
