• The cost of the trucks today (one year later) is \$400,000.

• The annual savings in this year’s dollars is \$90,000.

• The trucks will last for four years and then will be sold for \$100,000.

• The city can borrow money at a 7% discount rate to purchase the trucks.

• Inflation for the next four years is expected to average 3%.
