According to industry trade press reports, the auto market has been among the few bright spots of economic recovery around the country. The press reported on light-vehicle sales, broken down by the nation’s 12 Federal Reserve Districts. In recent months, most Districts saw car sales climb and new-vehicle supply improve following disruptions earlier this year. Overall, the San Francisco and New York districts (including parts of Northern New Jersey) have shown the greatest uptick in new-car sales. Meanwhile, on the pre-owned side of the vehicle market, New York and Philadelphia districts (BOTH encompassing parts of New Jersey) are still seeing high demand as well as tight supply for some models.
