The Excel formula would be, with the initial price in A1 (say 200) and the inflation rate in A2 (say 0.03 or 3%): =A1 * (1 + A2) ^ 30 As already noted, that is probably not a very realistic model.


If you assume a specific inflation rate per year (x%), the price in a year will be (100+x)% times the current price.
