Mortgage Applications Rise "Home purchase applications for conventional loans are now about 10 percent above last year's level."
U.S. auto sales continued to surge in March as buyers crowded dealerships looking to replace their aging cars with more fuel-efficient vehicles.
If the pace of Auto sales in March were to continue over the rest of the year, the auto industry would end up selling 14.4 million new vehicles in 2012, a big jump from the 2011 total of 12.8 million. That increase of 1.6 million vehicles roughly would be enough to fill up seven or eight auto assembly plants !!
