Auto sales decline in November
Total vehicle sales decreased 100,000 annualized units in November and monthly sales levels were up 7.4 percent year over year. NAFCU Research Analyst John Hay summarized the data in a new Macro Data Flash report.
“Vehicle sales declined in November, one month after the end of the most recent UAW strike,” said Hay.
“Despite pressure from tightening credit conditions and high interest rates, consumers have continued to defy economic headwinds this year. Data from Ward's Automotive shows that dealer inventories are 77 percent higher than a year ago, and both new and used car prices are continuing to fall.”
Auto sales were unchanged but saw a 2.9 decrease year-over-year. Light truck sales fell 100,000 units but increased 10.2 percent year over year. Data on units produced – which lags a month behind sales data – showed domestic production fell 12 percent in October but inventory rose 1.13 months of sales.
“The prospect of rate cuts plus the continued normalization of vehicle supply sets up for a stronger sales year in 2024,” concluded Hay.

In 2004, there were just over 9,000 credit unions and today there are about 4800 credit unions. There are a number of reasons for consolidation in the industry. [02:48] What can be said about the future of credit union mergers and acquisitions is that the conditions are right for increased activity. [04:57] If you lose key positions your availability to take care of your members is at risk. [06:49] From a non-monetary perspective it is simply the opportunity cost of losing members and tarnishing your reputation in the marketplace if the merger causes service issues. [07:25] The key consideration: Who do you need before, during, and after a merger to continue serving your existing and new members well?
