Weather Influences Sales Volume in Some Areas


Hur­ri­canes, storms and snow are dri­ving cus­tomer choic­es and auc­tion vol­ume in var­i­ous parts of the coun­try. Demand remains high as con­sumers and busi­ness­es con­tin­ue to replace vehi­cles lost in hur­ri­canes in the South. Inter­est in SUVs increased due to win­ter storms in Col­orado and oth­er parts of the coun­try. Snow and ice storms in the Mid­west affect­ed sales ear­ly in 2007, but deal­ers report busi­ness is return­ing.
