Auto and Truck Sales Surge in September

Some analysts say US growth stalled in August. We don't believe that, but if so, it has now reaccelerated in September. Auto (car and truck) sales rose 8% in September (from August) and are up 10.8% from the previous year. The gain versus a year ago comes despite Toyota and Honda still having inventory challenges related to the multiple disasters in Japan.
