This morning the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released the August jobs report. The U.S. added 315,000 jobs in August, down from the 526,000 in July and below the three-month average. Unemployment rose to 3.7%, up from the 50-year low of 3.5% in July. Naomi Blohm with Total Farm Marketing suspects this increase is due to more Americans reentering the labor market and looking for jobs. 

After hitting a 20-year high earlier this week, the U.S. dollar is down 46¢ this morning. The S&P 500 is up 22 points. The Dow is up 117 points.

In global news, this morning the G7 countries agreed to a price cap for Russian crude oil. Russia has responded by saying it will refuse to sell to countries that support the cap.
