Automobile sales are up again this year for the first time since the Arab Oil embargo. With fuel economy the prime consideration in automobile design, this year's models show little change from previous years. The Chevette, Chevorlet's small car, is low in price and scored a 40 mi-per-gal EPA rating. Most of the domestic cars have improved their ratings and prices are being kept down by removing equipment traditionally considered standard. Sales that would normally go to imports have been transferred to chevettes in many cases. Automobile manufacturers concede that the uncertain economic outlook could be a drawback to the recent improvement, but they are, on the whole, optimistic about the continuance of the upswing in sales.
