Cash For Clunkers Runs Out of Gas
February 26, 2010

The end of the line for the Cash for Clunkers program is Monday, after nearly $3 billion set aside for the project runs out. 

The program is considered one of the most successful parts of President Barack Obama's economic stimulus plan, which convinced hundreds of thousands of consumers to buy a car, according to The Detroit News
 
Consumer turnout at dealers is expected to be heavy through Monday as buyers look to cash in on the deal.

JD Power and Associates estimates retail auto sales will top 1 million in August, the first monthly increase since June 2007, largely as a result of "cash for clunkers," The Detroit News reported.
