Rise of total health expenditures

“In 2008, total national health expenditures were expected to rise 6.9 percent — two times the rate of inflation.” [1].

National Review says that the OECD average over the past four decades has risen on average 4.5 percent [2].

Doesn’t saying it’s growing 2x the rate of inflation seem a bit misleading when the average rate has been 4.5%?
