WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama has saluted the outgoing Timothy Geithner as one of the best U.S. Treasury secretaries ever. He's surely been among the most contentious.

37. No More Government Motors: US Selling GM Shares -

DETROIT (AP) – The U.S. government's foray into the car business is slowly coming to an end.

DETROIT (AP) — The raft of gloomy economic news may be starting to hurt U.S. auto sales.

51. Toyota, Chrysler See Big April Sales Gains -

DETROIT (AP) – Toyota and Chrysler saw big U.S. sales gains in April, but they came at the expense of General Motors and Ford.

When automakers finish reporting numbers on Tuesday, industry-wide sales are likely to rise only a little above April of 2011, but the annual pace is expected to match February and March. Automakers and analysts noted that this April had more Sundays than last year and fewer cars are sold on Sundays

58. US Factory Output Declined Sharply in November -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. manufacturing output fell in November for the first time in seven months.

The decline was largely because factories made fewer autos. But production of home electronics, appliances and business equipment also dropped.

59. Retail Sales are Helping Economy Grow Consistently -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Economic growth is picking up in the final three months of the year, fueled by higher consumer spending, rising business stockpiles and modest increases in hiring.

60. US Service Firms Expanded in Nov. at Slower Pace -

61. US Auto Sales Look Strong in November -

DETROIT (AP) – People are finally replacing the cars and trucks they held on to during the economic slump, giving a boost to U.S. auto sales in November.

This November, buyers were lured by good deals, improving confidence in the economy and the need to trade in older cars.

62. Sales of Midsize Cars Shrink as Buyers Go Smaller -

DETROIT (AP) – You can't drive far without seeing a Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or Ford Fusion.

Midsize sedans have been America's favorite cars for decades. That's changing. More people are choosing small cars like the Chevrolet Cruze and even smaller ones like the Honda Fit because they're worried about gas prices and car payments. There's another reason, too: Small cars are no longer the cramped econoboxes of the 1980s and 1990s, and they have many of the same features as larger cars.

63. Factory Activity Slows as Economy Stays Sluggish -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. manufacturing grew more slowly in October, hampered by weaker demand for exports and slower production at factories.

64. Trucks, SUVs Power Strong Auto Sales in October -

DETROIT (AP) – Car buyers were out in force in October, snapping up trucks and SUVs and taking advantage of deals on Japanese cars.

67. US Auto Sales Up in September on Big Trucks -

DETROIT (AP) – Pickups and SUVs boosted U.S. autos sales in September as dealers offered promotions, gas prices fell and contractors replaced aging fleets of work trucks.

Truck sales at General Motors, Chrysler and Ford grew in the double digits, outpacing cars. The September increases built on a healthy performance in August, when new models, cheaper financing and pent-up demand lifted the industry after several disappointing months.

68. General Motors Workers Ratify New Labor Contract -

DETROIT (AP) – Factory workers at General Motors have voted overwhelmingly to approve a new four-year contract with the company that has profit-sharing instead of pay raises for most workers and promises thousands of new jobs.

69. In the US, Two Housing Markets and Two Directions -

In America, it's starting to feel as if there are two housing markets. One for the rich and one for everyone else.

When The Daily News Publishing Co. Inc. was founded more than a century ago, court filings were recorded manually, a tweet was a sound a bird made, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg’s parents hadn’t been born yet.

73. August US Auto Sales Better Than Expected -

DETROIT (AP) – Car buyers shrugged off bad economic news and a major East Coast hurricane last month, lifting U.S. sales for most automakers.

General Motors, Chrysler, Ford and Nissan reported surprisingly strong sales results on Thursday. Toyota and Honda, however, continued to be hurt by model shortages from the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Both reported large sales drops.

74. US Auto Industry Uneasy After Weak July Sales -

DETROIT (AP) – Auto sales were expected to rise only slightly in July, adding to concerns in the industry that Americans are pulling back on car buying.

Analysts predicted a small increase in U.S. sales of new cars and trucks. A lack of discounts and lingering shortages of Japanese cars kept many buyers away. Americans also worried about the economy.

75. New Mileage Standards Aim for Less Fuel, Pollution -

77. Shuttle Cost: More Than AIG Bailout, Less Than War -

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – At $196 billion, the amount of money taxpayers spent during the lifetime of the space shuttle program seems astronomical.

78. GM, Ford June Sales Rise, Honda Falls -

DETROIT (AP) – Gas prices have hit a sweet spot for U.S.-based automakers. They've fallen enough to spur pickup truck sales, yet remain so high that newer small cars are selling as well.

79. White House Considers Big Boost to Fuel Economy -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration is telling American automakers that it would like cars and light trucks to average 56.2 miles per gallon by 2025 – a boost to fuel economy that would save consumers money at the pump and help with global warming but drive up the cost of automobiles.

80. Mayors Launch Office of Sustainability -

81. Wal-Mart Remains Atop Fortune 500 List -

New vehicle sales rose 11 percent at General Motors, 16 percent at Ford, 23 percent at Honda and 27 percent at Nissan, all aided by sales of smaller, more efficient cars and crossovers, which look like truck-based SUVs but are more fuel efficient and nimble because they are built on car underpinnings.

88. CVS Caremark 4Q Profit Falls 2 Percent -

DETROIT (AP) – U.S. sales of cars and trucks rose in January, a strong start to what the auto industry hopes will be an extension of last year's recovery.

DETROIT (AP) — U.S. auto sales sputtered back to life in 2010 and car companies expect them to keep climbing this year as the economy recovers and buyers grow more confident.

With sales of around 11.5 million new cars and trucks, 2010 was still the second-worst year in almost three decades, after 2009.

92. November Auto Sales Show Industry in Recovery -

DETROIT (AP) – After a year of watching auto sales slowly increase month by month, industry executives are finally willing to firmly declare that the U.S. market is in recovery.

And that's reflected in November's auto sales figures: Industry sales were up 16.9 percent for the month compared with a year ago. Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Honda, Nissan and Hyundai all posted double-digit gains.
