October US Auto Sales are up 6.1%

US Auto Sales were up 6.1% from last October, but total sales for the year are still down 2.9%. GM sales were up 17.3%, Ford saw 8.0% gains and Toyota was up 9.2%. Nissan was also up 3.9% from last year. Despite the large increases, companies are still suffering in comparison to last year when sales had taken a steep dive after a summer of heavy discounts.

Lower gas prices have seen a surge in larger vehicles, trucks and SUVs. A drop in hybrid car sales occured as well (I'll be posting more on that later).
