Auto sales fall again, but buyers flock to SUVs and trucks
By LA Times,July 03, 2017
Unemployment is down, consumer confidence is up, and gas prices and interest rates are still low.
Even so, U.S. auto sales fell 3% last month.
It was the sixth straight monthly decline as sales dropped off last year's record pace. For the first six months, car and truck sales fell 2.1%, the first such decrease since the financial crisis in 2009.
