BGOV_BAROMETER_102011. Graphic shows that even if the U.S. increases oil production by 25 percent, as Texas Governor Rick Perry has pledged, the nation would still be importing more than one-third of the liquid fuels it consumes in 2035. Perry’s promise to bring the U.S. “energy independence” if elected president risks running afoul of reality, as happened when presidents from Richard M. Nixon to Barack Obama made similar declarations. Size: 2C X 4in. (96.0 mm X 101.6 mm) Expected by 15:00.

US_ECO_HOME_SALES_PREV_OWNED_102011. Graphic shows the number of previously owned homes sold in the U.S. and their median price over time. Sales of existing homes fell in September, extending a pattern of declines and gains that show the industry continues to be buffeted by consumer pessimism and unemployment above 9 percent. Available now in two sizes: 1C X 4.25 in. (45.9 mm X 107.95 mm) and 2C X 3.75 in. (96 mm X 95.25 mm)

COD_US_STOCKS_EURO_102011. CHART OF THE DAY. Graphic shows that the relationship between daily swings in the euro and the Standard and Poor’s 500 Index is the closest since the European currency was introduced in 1999. Investors are focused on the euro region’s efforts to resolve its sovereign debt crisis, according to Myles Zyblock, chief institutional strategist at RBC Capital Markets. Size: 2C X 4in. (96.0 mm X 101.6 mm) Expected by 15:00.
