Car battery sales up due to cold weather

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - It happens a lot this time of year. You go out to start your car in the morning and the battery is dead.

The staff at O'Reilly auto parts in Bismarck say sales have spiked for car batteries, fuel additives, and anything else people need to keep going in winter, which comes in handy for a lot of people.

"I came up here from Florida some years back. I never had those kinda issues, but here in Bismarck I've definitely had some issues like that, and thankfully I've had some help," said David Baxter, Bismarck resident.

O'Reiley says it's selling 10 batteries on a slow day, maybe 20-30 batteries a day on colder days.
