On the jobs front, the unemployment rate for September fell to 4.8%, with a disappointing 194,000 jobs added. Oil prices rose to the $80 level, which translates to a local regular unleaded gasoline price of $3.09 at my last fill-up.
On the financial front, it was more "slow & steady": 401k transactions, a monthly Vanguard VTI brokerage purchase, and a pending distribution from my S Corp.
Once again, my monthly update is happening on the same day that the September 2021 CPI-U numbers came out. Stay tuned for a follow-up on of the impact for Series I Savings Bonds.
