From Market Watch

Overall, the industry reported a SAAR (seasonally adjusted annual rate of sales) of 13.6 million units, according to Autodata, up from 12.28 million in November 2010. Total deliveries rose 13.9% from a year earlier

This is actually a little slower than I was intuitively expecting. Fleet sales are easing more than I would have thought.

A surge on the more-profitable truck side bodes well for GM as does a move away from the lower margin business of selling vehicles to rental car companies and other bulk buyers.

Retail sales rose 15% while fleet sales dropped 14%.

It will makes a 14 Million SAAR December look less likely but though still not impossible.

Again, were it not for Europe the US economy would be poised for explosive growth.
