Inflation is most likely running at approximately 2.6% and 2.2% (core)

If we take a look at annual inflation after the pandemic began in early 2020 and the pandemic is treated as a single episode that does not mechanically accelerate as time passes then we can get a more realistic inflation estimate.

The chart depicts the headline and core CPI levels, as well as trend lines showing their average annual growth rates since February 2020.

After the outbreak of the pandemic, headline CPI inflation has averaged 2.6 percent on an annualized basis, while core CPI inflation has averaged 2.2 percent, according to these calculations.
