U.S. government debt prices were mixed on Friday as investors digested another dip in oil prices and the latest consumer price inflation data.

"Bottom line, I'm going to say for the umpteenth time that goods deflation is being completely offset by services inflation and this constant talk that we are in a global deflationary spiral is nonsense," Peter Boockvar, chief market analyst at The Lindsey Group, said in a note.
