Trump's Hikes Double the Cost of Tariffs to Consumers: Report

President Trump's recent increase in tariff rates on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports raises the overall cost of tariffs on Chinese goods for U.S. households to $106 billion a year, according to a new analysis published on the New York Federal Reserve Bank's blog.Individual households will pay $831 per year on average in added costs if the tariffs remain in place, the economists said. That roughly doubles the size of the impact from the previous tariff levels, which were costing households an estimated $419 on average per year.The higher tariffs could lead to a drop in revenues for the Treasury Department, because the cost increase is so large that it will drive U.S. importers to...

Exclusive: EPA to unveil less ambitious U.S. biofuel credit reform - sources

President Donald Trump had instructed the EPA to develop the plan to reform the multi-billion-dollar market as a way to help the oil refining industry, which had long complained that speculation was driving up costs for the credits they must acquire to comply with the nation's biofuel law. Trump had asked that the EPA's reform be finalized prior to June 1 to coincide with the agency's move to expand sales of gasoline blended with higher levels of corn-based ethanol, or E15, a measure meant to help farmers by expanding the market for corn. It is unclear whether a narrowed-down version of the market reform plan will limit the intended benefits to refiners.
