Adjust oranges prices for inflation

Start with the inflation rate formula:

CPI in 2021 / CPI in 2011 * 2011 USD value = 2021 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values from above. The CPI for Oranges, including tangerines was 419.527 in the year 2011 and 521.177 in 2021:

521.177 / 419.527 * $1.44 = $1.79

Therefore, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, $1.44 in 2011 has the same "purchasing power" as $1.79 in 2021 (in the CPI category of Oranges, including tangerines).
