      June auto sales surge for Big Three Detroit automakers

      Detroit's Big Three automakers welcomed the falling gas prices because they spurred a sale surge in June. The lower price pump brought buyers into showrooms looking for both trucks and small cars.

      Chrysler was the big winner in June, seeing a sales increase of 30% over last year. General Motors and Ford both saw sales increase about 10% last month.

      But Honda and Toyota each saw sales drop more than 21% because of a shortage of small, fuel efficient automobiles.

      Click here to see a complete breakdown of all the automaker's sales for June.
