Unemployment Numbers Continue To Improve

The U.S. Department of Labor announced this morning the number of new people filing for unemployment declined again last week to take the four-week moving average to its lowest level in four years. Not since March of 2001, when the last recession began, have we seen the numbers at this level.

2.58 million Americans are receiving unemployment benefits at this time. That number is down 312,000 from the same time a year ago.

An average of 191,000 jobs have been created each month compared to 183,000 a month last year.

Lets hope yesterday’s all time high close of a barrel of oil, $67.10, does not impact companies and consumers to the point they start buying less.
