    Depends on what artists you're interested in.

    Adele's "30" is $36 on Amazon, double LP. Still a lot more than the $10 CD version however. Other new releases the LP isn't even double the price anymore, CD prices are actually slowly increasing to match the ~$19 price point of many single LP releases now.

    The usual problem with the inflation calculator with vinyl is that you have downloads and CD's that are still cheaper. Sometimes by a significant amount.

    Some consumer products match with inflation, others do not. Still, I consider $20 for a single LP release to be a fair price for what I'm getting.
