 Comment by J.B. Fitzpatrick,
 Vice President, GM Communications and Marketing Staff
 GM's vehicle sales performance in May continued the corporation's steady, upward sales trend in 1992. The primary reason for the positive, yearlong trend is due in large part to stronger product demand from retail customers.
 In reflecting on the corporation's 1992 sales performance and full- year sales prospects, we are encouraged by the positive consumer and media reception given to GM's many all-new and award-winning cars and trucks. Also, we are encouraged at the full-year sales prospects for our cars and trucks because of a continuing improvement in consumer optimism for the economy. Overall, we are optimistic that the economic recovery is firmly on track; that consumer spending will increase during the remainder of the year sustained by strengthening consumer confidence levels; and, that GM and overall industry sales will continue to improve.
