The Bond Buyer - - Market News -

WASH­ING­TON – The U.S. in­ter­na­tional trade gap widened very slightly in July to $43.7 bil­lion, smaller than the $44.8 bil­lion gap ex­pected and fol­low­ing a re­vised smaller $43.5 bil­lion gap in June, data re­leased by the Com­merce Depart­ment Wed­nes­day morn­ing showed.

The mod­estly larger trade gap was the re­sult of a 0.3% de­cline in ex­ports that was par­tially off­set by a 0.2% de­crease in im­ports.
