March Car Sales Best In Four Years

According to the Coeur d'Alene Press, the auto industry achieve its best monthly performance in almost four years in March.

General Motors said its U.S. sales rose 12 percent compared with last March due to demand for small, fuel efficient cars; competitive deals on trucks and unseasonably warm weather (although I'm not sure how that inspires people to buy cars).

Chrysler Group's sales jumped 34 percent as buyers went for Fiat small cars and Chrysler sedans.
