Probably the most significant change to the updated Quikrete Industry Dashboard is actually not a change at all – the national unemployment rate held steady at 3.6%. The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the figure Friday morning, along with the finding that construction employment was up 4,000 in May, following an increase of 30,000 in April.

Elsewhere on the Dashboard, gas prices as reported by the American Automobile Association are down 12 cents from a month ago, and down 16 cents from a year ago. And the stock market continues to show more companies in retreat than otherwise.
