August used vehi­cle val­ues saw con­tin­u­a­tion of a four-month trend with declines from the pre­vi­ous month; each vehi­cle seg­ment was down from July 2014. Kel­ley Blue Book still projects that 2014 will end slight­ly high­er in prices than 2013 saw; but the gap in year-over-year vehi­cles price gains has thinned way down – from $711 in May 2014 to just $165 in August 2014.
