ST. MARYS — Local car dealerships saw an increase in sales during what some believe will be a year that brings back the vitality of the car market after a few rough recession years.
Jason Black, of Bud’s Chevrolet Buick, said the car market is “exploding.”
“This is going to be a huge year,” he said. “You’re looking pre-recession numbers, really. Nobody’s purchased cars in last three to four years, which means cars on the road are averaging 10 years. There’s only so much life in these cars.”
