Tri-Cities Car Sales Slumping, Even with Memorial Day

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Local car dealerships report one of the slowest sales years on record in 2008.

One dealer says sales are down almost 50 percent.

Sales for trucks and SUVs are down even more as consumers shift toward more fuel efficient compacts.

Compacts are hard to keep on the lots, according to dealers, because of record gas prices.
