RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Virginia's unemployment rate in December is the lowest jobless number in four years.

At 5.5%, last month was down just a fraction from November, but still good enough to make it the third consecutive month that joblessness has declined.

The state's overall unemployment rate is below the national average of 7.8%.
