By Greg OrlowskiAssociated PressPublished Feb 08, 2017 04:06:06The U.S. auto industry is on the verge of a major expansion, and it’s growing at a faster pace than any other industry.
But the industry’s outlook isn’t so rosy.
Manufacturers are expecting a strong start to 2017, but there are some challenges ahead, said Greg Orlovski, president of the National Automotive Dealers Association.
The industry is expecting an average of about 800,000 cars a week this year, up from roughly 400,000 in 2016.
But those cars are still small and often are sold through multiple dealerships.
That means that dealerships are not filling the gaps in inventory needed to keep up with demand.
And it means that prices are going up.
More than 1.5 million people work in the auto industry, according to the National Association of Manufacturers.
The number of auto sales increased nearly 5 percent in the first quarter, which was driven by a strong economy and a bumper stock market.
But there are many hurdles ahead for the auto makers, which are now struggling to find a way to keep pace with the demand for vehicles.
Automakers have long sought to keep prices low.
But with the U.K. and other markets in the European Union tightening their rules, the industry is trying to find ways to keep costs low.
It also has to adapt to a changing landscape where many manufacturers are looking to expand in the United States.
The U-turn was part of a broader push by auto makers to increase demand for cars, and that effort continues in the wake of the U-Turn.
The auto industry now has more than 800,00 new cars on the road, according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
That number has risen steadily for years, as new models like the Chevrolet Cruze and Audi A6 have been on sale.
That growth has come despite the fact that manufacturers have struggled to keep the cost of production low enough to satisfy customers.
The latest auto-dealer survey by the National Manufacturers Association says that while dealerships have grown by nearly 2 percent this year in sales and inventory, they have lost about 3 percent of their sales from the previous year.
The National Association is the trade group that represents auto manufacturers.
It was formed in 1994 to represent dealers in the U, U.N. and U.T.O. markets.
The association is part of the American Automobile Association, the largest vehicle industry group in the country.
More from Business Insider:Automakers say they are making more of everythingThe Automotive Research Institute says the industry made 1.4 trillion dollars last year, and its average cost of producing a car was $18,834.
That includes everything from components to assembly and parts.
The American Automotive Association says its industry has grown by 4.5% from 2015 to 2017.
It’s been growing steadily, but has been struggling to maintain that growth.
Its president, Jeff Immelt, said the auto market is growing at about 7% a year and will be growing even faster in the coming years.
But Immelt said that the current growth rate won’t continue indefinitely.
“It’s hard to sustain that growth,” he said.
“In a lot of ways, our auto business has never been so competitive in our industry, and our competitors have never been as competitive,” he added.
“And our ability to continue to grow will depend on our ability not only to produce more cars, but to deliver them at lower prices to consumers.”
The latest statistics show that auto sales are at a 20-year low.
The last time they were this low was in 1988, when the U.-turn was being discussed.
The biggest obstacle facing the auto-industry is the need for more inventory.
Automakers have struggled with supply and demand for a long time, as more and more vehicles are built with less and less capacity to carry them.
That has led to higher costs, which has been one of the biggest challenges for manufacturers.
“The supply-and-demand equation is going to be a challenge for the industry,” Immelt told Business Insider.
“If we don’t have the capacity to fulfill those orders and we don.
… it’s going to hurt our bottom line.”
Some auto manufacturers have been able to lower prices, but it’s a challenge, as prices are up across the board.
That’s why manufacturers are trying to cut costs.
In the past, auto manufacturers would cut costs by shipping parts from suppliers to dealerships, but that’s no longer possible.
“When we cut costs, it makes us more competitive, but also hurts the overall bottom line,” Immel said.
“That’s where we have to cut back on costs and keep prices down.”
The challenge is even more acute for auto-parts makers, as they can’t lower prices on the way to
