Sales at major automakers are up and down. General Motors sold 3% more cars in May 2015 than in May of last year; while Ford sold 1.3% fewer cars in the same period, and Fiat Chrysler sold 4% more cars over the same period. U.S. auto industry sales may reach the elusive 17 million cars in 2015 - based on sales through May; quite a remarkable turnaround since the recent recession, when just 5.7 million cars were sold in 2009. A brightening job outlook, relatively cheap gas prices, and moderate price increases for new cars may contribute to making 2015 the best year in car sales since 2001.
