GRAND BLANC, MI (WNEM) - Auto sales are on the rise here in Mid-Michigan as inventory drives off the car lot. U.S. auto sales were stronger than expected in May, boosted by Memorial Day promotions and a strong demand for new SUVs.

So why the hike in sales this month? People love buying big vehicles when gas prices are down and those prices have been down for months.

According to analysts and auto dealers, another reason for the high vehicle sales is the information available at people's fingertips. More consumers are getting information on their smart phones and their computers at home when they want to go out and purchase a new vehicle.

U.S. auto sales are expected to reach 17 million this year.
