Here is the average annual inflation rate for the last 20 years

If inflation and exchanges rates were directly linked, then you should see a spike in inflation that matches your alleged spike in exchange rates. However, since 1992, the inflation rate has been steady, fluxuating between 2% and 4%. Those are extremely low inflation rates:
2011 = 2.78%, 2010 = -0.34%, 2009 = 3.85%, 2008 = 2.85, 2007 = 3.24
2006 = 3.39, 2005 = 2.68, 2004 = 2.27, 2003 = 1.59, 2002 = 2.83
2001 = 3.38, 2000 = 2.19, 1999 = 1.55, 1998 = 2.34, 1997 = 2.93
1996 = 2.81, 1995 = 2.61, 1994 = 2.96, 1993 = 3.03, 1992 = 4.25
1991 = 5.39, 1990 = 4.83, 1989 = 4.08
