New car sales have reached a plateau, according to Michelle Krebs of Autotrader.
Krebs says May's sales could be flat or just slightly higher compared to last year. That follows several months of sales being down slightly.
She says one reason is the cost of everything, including a new car, is going up, but incomes aren't. The average price for a new car is now $30,000.
"The price of shelter, of health care, of education have gone up even more," says Krebs, "and yet household income has stagnated."
