I just copied down the rates for I-bonds and EE bonds since I-bonds were started, and thought others might want the information in one place. It will be interesting to see if I-bond fixed rates ever go back up above 3% during a normal interest rate cycle: sure looks like they will win over EE bonds most years at 3% or above. (Hope this comes out as a table, since it didn't with cut and paste.)

Date I Fixed Rate I Inflation Rate I-Bond Total EE Bond
11/98 3.4 1.72 5.12 4.6
5/99 3.3 1.72 5.02 4.31
11/99 3.4 3.52 6.92 5.19
5/00 3.6 3.82 7.42 5.73
11/00 3.4 3.04 6.44 5.54
5/01 3.0 2.88 5.88 4.5
11/01 2.0 2.38 4.38 4.07
