    WASHINGTON — Interest rates on short-term Treasury bills were mixed in Monday’s auction, with rates on three-month bills rising to the highest level in three weeks while rates on six-month bills were unchanged.

    The Treasury Department auctioned $28 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.075 percent, up from 0.065 percent last week. Another $32 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.105 percent, the same as last week.

    The three-month rate was the highest since those bills averaged 0.085 percent on Dec. 26.
