Uncle8888 is no different from anyone else. He is also worried about future inflation so he projected his future annual expenses @ 2.5 % inflation rate from Jan 2015 to Jan 2040 and look like this chart below:
But, in reality, when he looked back at his family of five past years monthly expenses from Oct 2001 to Feb 201; from the chart it looked so differently.
Where is the past years inflationary impact shown in the chart?
To smooth out those spikes in monthly expenses, he added in a 6-month Moving Averages; but still it did not show a clear indication of any up trend in monthly expenses due to inflationary impact. This is not what he expected to see.
So what went wrong?
Has he grossly over-estimated the impact of inflation on his future living expenses till 2040?
