 COMMENT BY J. B. FITZPATRICK,
 VICE PRESIDENT FOR THE COMMUNICATIONS AND MARKETING STAFF
 Strong month-end car and truck sales helped GM's January sales edge up over last year's results. Although many consumers continue to be concerned with the economic outlook, our vehicle divisions report evidence of increased floor traffic, more comparison shoppers and more new-vehicle test drives. This is certainly better news than we've had, and it is a positive signal that growing numbers of consumers are actively considering the purchase of a new GM car or truck.
 GM truck deliveries were up almost 9 percent compared to last January's level, and are at a level which we expect will better the overall industry's performance. January truck sales increases were posted by GM's four truck selling divisions, with strong demand for full-size pickups and the all-new Suburban models. GM's passenger car sales in January were off 2 percent from last year's performance but are expected to be in line with total industry results for the month. Importantly, GM's all-new 1992 passenger cars continue to register positive year-to-year sales gains. In addition, Saturn reported significantly higher monthly sales results.
