Here's a great site that has all kinds of government statistics on CPI and inflation:

I've seen several places that inflation average for the last couple of decades is 3.2%. Plus, I can't imagine a scenario where the inflation rate would stay at 5%. Maybe for a year or two or three, but hopefully nothing sustained. The Fed seems to have much better control of inflation now than it did 30 years ago.
