The 10 YR yield is currently at 3.037%.

The 10-year Treasury yield popped back above 3% on Wednesday after the government’s April consumer price index rose a stronger-than-expected 8.3% year over year. Removing volatile food and energy prices, so-called core CPI still rose a great-than-expected 6.2%.

A source of inflation in the economy has been oil prices and in turn record-high gasoline prices. West Texas Intermediate crude, the American benchmark, rose about 3% to $103 per barrel Wednesday after back-to-back sharp declines. The downturn in the two prior sessions was driven by supply concerns as the European Union works to gain support for a Russian oil embargo. A vote on the proposal, which needs unanimous approval, has been delayed as Hungary has dug in its heels in opposition.

So tomorrow we get the Producer Price Index numbers.

Futures initially were declining after release of the CPI, but now look to be rising a bit.

U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are mostly higher and Asian markets ended mostly higher.

The national average price of gasoline is up 3.0 cents at $4.404 per gallon.
