Nonfarm payrolls increased by 160,000 jobs last month as construction employment barely rose and the retail sector shed jobs, the Labor Department said on Friday. That was the smallest gain since September and below the first-quarter average job growth of 200,000. Employers added 19,000 fewer jobs in February and March than previously reported. While the unemployment rate held at 5.0 percent that was because people dropped out of the labor force. Economists had forecast payrolls rising 202,000 last month and the jobless rate unchanged at 5 percent.

European stocks are lower and Asian markets ended lower.

The national average price of gasoline is down three-tenths of a cent at $2.220 per gallon.
