"Search kennels. Christy king tapio news Another increase in the number of Americans applied for those jobless benefits, the latest numbers from the Labor Department up this week show 262,000 people as for unemployment aid up 14,000 from the week before, the highest level actually in 9 months. This morning Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst for bankrate dot com with his tank. If you like our temperatures, there does seem to be some cooling here and this is probably to some degree welcome believe it or not, not the people are becoming unemployed, not at all. But remember of the unemployment rate for July was three and a half percent. So the job market has been quite hot. And some companies have been reducing their personnel, whether they're fearful about what may loom in the future with the economy or that they are actually seeing some weaker demand. Hey, we got word they have a slight drop in July inflation. It's at 8 and a half percent compared to about 9% more than 9% in June. The president is taking some credit for this mark, but are we really in that good of shape? It's almost like being a Washington Nationals fan where you'll take a win where you can get at these days. And that's another story, of course. But we really have had some good news on inflation for two days running in the sense that the headline numbers have come in below expectations. And with this measure of producer prices or wholesale inflation, we actually saw a month over month decline. That doesn't get us to where we want to be with inflation. We know there are still high prices for a lot of things, even with this decline at the gasoline pump or well above where we were a year ago, and the price for food remains elevated, but I'd say things are moving in a better direction. And that's encouraging. That is, Mark Henry, senior economic analyst for bank rate dot com. Don't you the latest jobless numbers with Hillary and Sean. You are listening to 103.5 FM in WTO P dot com.
