Auto sales slumping in Clark County

Figures from TransUnion, one of the nation's largest credit reporting bureaus, show that Nevadans carry the highest average balance on auto loans in the nation. We owe about $15,000 compared to the national average of about $12,600. With our already high debt load and continued worries about a still bad economy, it looks like our love affair with newer, expensive vehicles is over for now. The steep decline in auto dealers' taxable sales, particularly since last fall, tell the story.
