The economy has really taken a toll on the overall sales of vehicles. Pretty sad.

Auto sales are bad, we have had 5 dealerships close around here in the past few months, some have been in biz for 75 yrs, and some 50 yrs. With the cost of a new truck ranging from 30k - 50 k and the cost of gas, people are just not able to afford to purchase new

Ouch Auto sales are down 50 percent in central florida. Several dealers are shutting down. Gas prices and lack of financing are the root causes. There are some signs of minor recovery. I hope soon since my clients are car dealers.

I hope that it turns around for you. My biz is hurting too, I'm in the home improvement world, and people just aren't spending money.
