Playing Around With Various Running Averages

Is there any average, i.e., 30 day, 90 day, 180 day, triangular,
exponential, etc. that does _not_ extrapolate out to above 50% in 3
months? Assume the extrapolation is just a straight line.

Is there any numerical technique that provides the criteria for the
lowest possible result?
