Cars are selling at Albany car dealers

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

When you drive down East Oglethorpe in Albany, you can't help but notice the many car dealerships. Most of these dealers saw a lot of people drive onto their lots, hoping to drive off in that perfect ride  

"We've sold 115 so far this month "said John Temples, Five Star Nissan.  

"This year compared to last year this store in this market is up 119% over last year" said Bobby Stevens.  

Here at Five Star Nissan sales men and women have been busy making deals. They're finishing the year strong and hope that trend continues in 2014.  

"Of course we want to work as long as we can to get every deal done we can, we have record sales every month this year," said Temples.  

When you go across the road over to Carl Gregory's Chrysler, Jeep, Ram, and Hyundai, workers are busy as well trying to get as many of these cars off their lots as possible before the end of the year. Sheila Butler got herself a new car for the holidays, a black 2014 Chrysler 200.  

"A blessing, I feel real good right now," said Sheila Butler.   Workers at Carl Gregory say because of the up tick in the U.S. Economy, more people like Sheila are buying new cars because they have more confidence in the economy.  

"People are out buying, the money is there, the banks are lending like they've never lent money before," said Stevens.  

And car dealerships all across Albany want consumers like you to stop by their lots, to check out a car that fits you. N

ow Edmund's forecast calls for over a million new cars and trucks in the U.S. to be sold in the U.S. for the month of December, a 15% increase over November and a 5% rise compared to December 2012.     

So far in 2013, August was the biggest month for total car sales. In fact, it was the biggest August ever.
