(WKBN) — Auto sales across the Mahoning Valley continue to lag behind those from last year except for used vehicle sales — they’re holding their own.

But used vehicle sales last month were up 5.6% and year to date are down just 1.2%.

New and used combined sales were down 11% in May and are down 13% year to date.
