The Candy Machine Inflation Index

There are many mundane things that Econo-Girl looks to in determining the rate of inflation:  the price of milk and eggs, the price of fresh produce, the structural issues around the supply and cost of gas, to name but a few.  But there is one indicator that is absolute:  the prices for candy in candy machines.  Why absolute?  Because that price NEVER GOES DOWN.  EVER.
Econo-Girl was again indulging her pechance for Peanut M & Ms when she saw THE PRICE HAD RISEN 25% SINCE YESTERDAY! 
Hold on tight, my little dumplings.  We are in for a wild ride.

I can not use the vending machine index. I work at the airport, so already vending machine prices are high.

It costs $2.25 for a 20 ounce bottle of soda from a vending machine. OUCH!

The Lazy One has a small fridge on his office desk. The fridge holds 6 cans o soda.
