Hamilton County car titles up 26 percent in July

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- New cars and trucks titled in Hamilton County are on pace for the best year since 2008.

July registrations were up sharply from a year ago, county figures show, despite a 30-cent jump in gas prices the past five weeks.

New vehicles titled, which closely track sales, rose 26.4 percent in July versus the same month in 2011, according to the Hamilton County Clerk's Office.

"We had a very good July," said Dwight Morgan, general manager for Integrity Automotive Group in Chattanooga. "For the balance of the year, we see a gradual increase in sales."
