Driving the Economy

In North Carolina the retail auto industry is a $15 billion enterprise. The industry generates 20 percent of the state's retail sales tax and ranks ninth nationally in the number of car dealerships. Eighteen more workers are employed per dealer than the national average. While dealerships declined from 50,000 to 20,000 nationally between 1949 and 1999, they remain a continuing, successful small business in the Southeast.
