 Comment by J.B. Fitzpatrick, GM vice president in charge of Marketing and Communications:
 GM car and truck sales continued at higher levels in 1992, and April marked the fourth straight monthly year-over-year sales increase. GM car divisions which ran stronger in April were Pontiac, Cadillac, Oldsmobile and Saturn. These divisions all recorded April and year-to- year increases in new vehicle sales to retail customers. On the truck side, all four truck selling divisions reported solid sales gains with GMC Truck and Chevrolet accounting for the majority of April's truck sales increase.
 The nation's economy continues to improve while the level of consumer confidence registered a small gain in April following a sharp rise in March, which signals consumers believe better days are ahead. As the economic recovery proceeds and consumer confidence continues to strengthen, we look forward to a pickup in new vehicle sales and a gradual return to more normal selling rates.
