Auto sales up nearly 10 percent
Sales of new cars and trucks in North Carolina were up nearly 10 percent for the first half of 2013 (January through June) compared to last year, according to the North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association. Sales are on track to reach a total of 445,000 new units sold by year end, an increase of nearly 11 percent vs. new units sold in 2012.
The availability of low cost consumer credit, increased optimism in the workplace and an aging fleet of vehicles, have all contributed to the upward climb in vehicle sales.
