Rising Commodities And Lower Energy Costs Help Businesses

Posted: 21 December, 2012

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A new survey of rural bankers shows that rising commodity prices and lower energy costs are helping businesses in Midwestern states and the northern Plains. The Rural Mainstreet Index released Thursday climbed in December, the fourth straight month of growth.  Creighton University economist Ernie Goss, who oversees the survey, says the reading is the healthiest recorded since June 2007. The survey showed increases in bank borrowing to purchase farmland and equipment, and rising farmland prices. The December hiring index rose half a point, to 53.5. The home-sales index slipped in December, to 61.3 from November’s 62.0.
