TYLER - Local dealers say their sales have gone up fifty to sixty percent since last year.
They say part of the credit goes to a better economy, and part of it goes to all the deals they've been offering to generate sales.
Nation-wide auto sales are expected to jump about seventeen percent for the month of June compared to last June.
However, they are expected to drop ten percent compared to sales in may of this year.
That's reportedly due in part to the number of price breaks offered earlier than usual this year.
In May of this year, one local dealer had a different reason for a slight decrease in sales.
"We kind of took a little hit in May not because of any problem with the economy, we almost ran out of cars!" Charles Wright from Jack o' Diamonds says.
