Also from the NYT:
In July, G.M., Ford and Chrysler sold their vehicles at an average price of $30,400 — $1,350 more than a year ago and higher than an overall industry gain of $1,100, according to the auto research Web site Edmunds.com.From the LA Times:

GM may not be the leader, but it will mark a big shift in the way we drive to work.
