Chrysler to Lead December Sales Gains, as Ford Begins F150 Rollout, from The Street.
Auto sales continued to mirror the economy’s strength in December, with experts forecasting a gain of 10% or more over the same month a year earlier.
“Many factors have helped car sales recently,” says Edmunds.com analyst Jessica Caldwell, in a prepared statement. “Low gas prices, a record stock market and the improving economy are making people feel more financially comfortable, and even the weather has cooperated, for the most part.”
Sales also benefited because December 2014 had 26 sales days, one more than 2013.
