Car Sales Up

Posted: Updated:

Car dealerships are booming with customers all across the country, including right here in North Dakota.

New car sales jumped 17% last month to 1.5 million, the highest level since the start of the recession. And, that's certainly the case here in town. Minot Chrysler is experiencing back to back record sales, up even higher than national; they're up 6% just in the past few weeks.

Chrysler's general sales manager says it could be attributed to the low interest rates and the high paying jobs in the area.

"We kind of expect it and we gear up for it, that's why we stocked a large inventory so were ready for it to finish the quarter strong. We have a real strong agriculture business so we got a lot of trucks since last quarter, we're expecting lots of things out of this last quarter," says Jerry Leiss, Minot Chrysler general sales manager.

 Leiss says they sold 300 cars just last month, many of those being pick up trucks used in the oil fields.
