How embarrassing to read all the congratulatory verbiage about the brilliant GM Employee Discount for Everyone sales promo.
Since when is a fire sale cause for celebration?
I doubt that Billy Durant would be patting anyone on the back. GM is unloading at the dealers' expense inventory the public doesn't really want.
Why? Because GM has had the myopic lack of foresight to continue to build enormous, gasoline-inhaling school buses in the face of serious national oil supply issues.
Anyone who couldn't see the present escalating gas prices coming must have been living under a rock.
Of course people are not going to want to buy vehicles they can't afford to drive. GM must get serious about fuel efficiency and stop taking the Toyota assault lying down.
