* Dollar gets lift from tick up in Treasury yields before key data * Boston Fed chief says labour market slack "still significant" * Graphic: World FX rates https://tmsnrt.rs/2RBWI5E By Kevin Buckland TOKYO, April 13 (Reuters) - The dollar rose from near a three-week low against major rivals on Tuesday, buoyed by a bump in Treasury yields, as traders awaited highly anticipated U.S. inflation data later in the day. Boston Federal Reserve Bank President Eric Rosengren said on Monday that the U.S. economy could see a significant rebound this year thanks to accommodative monetary and fiscal policy, though the labour market still has much room for improvement. "Treasury issuance is surging at the same time as inflationary pressures show in the data, which should lift the U.S. dollar."

Nearly half of all oil pipelines from the Permian basin, the biggest U.S. oilfield, are expected to be empty by the end of the year, analysts and executives said.

Major pipeline companies are exploring ways to ship other products in those lines and considering selling stakes in operations to raise cash.
