The biggest movement on the latest edition of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard is in the Consumer Watch area, where the unemployment rate fell from a super low 3.7% to an even lower 3.5%. That’s the lowest since December 1969.

However, while economists expected some 145,000 job gains, the numbers show less – 136,000.

Elsewhere on the dashboard, hardware and building supply stocks remain volatile. And gas prices are holding steady between last month and last year.
