When the Sub-prime auto loan market bubble burst you'll really see the sales plummet. 36% of all car loans are sub-prime. Consider that the sub-prime markets between 2nd qtr. 2009 and 2nd qtr 2013, rose 93%, from 10.8 Billion to 21.2 billion, explaining the initial increase in sales. BTW, 3.6% are delinquent 90 days or more. Also, China's economy is tanking, GM made 33.3 Billion in China in 2012, which is 22% of sales, and it doesn't seem like things are going to get better in China anytime soon. And, banks are bundling and dumping off these sub-primes loans so it is only a matter of time before that bubble burst.

The real story is the last paragraph,"The cost increase is because the tests will be administered by a private firm rather than the state."Find out who the private firm is and then find out which law maker has a financial interest in that firm. I would guarantee this is directly benefiting one of our "representatives". Also, this http://www.vindy.com/news/2012/oct/08... Gov. needs access to Student ID info. Increase fees for everything and give up more privacy. This seems to be a trend.

@VINDYYAK The South Side is comin' back!! Just wait till the city sell those properties, the owners get the restoration grants (and run off with the money!) It will be grand! All the glory of 1960's Youngstown!
