The Nation’s international trade deficit in goods and services increased to $43.0 billion in September from $40.0 billion in August (revised), as exports decreased and imports increased. (November 4, 2014)
September 2014 Trade Highlights
Beginning in late summer, the balance of trade in pumpkins between the United States and Canada begins to reverse. As you can see in the chart, exports from the U.S. slow just as imports grow steeply, until, by early autumn, the usual balance of trade between the U.S. and Canada has reversed. The U.S. imports enough from Canada in these few autumn months to make them both our largest supplier of pumpkins and our largest foreign market for U.S. exports of pumpkins and squash during the rest of the year.
