Cheap gas not enough to drive sales, desirable cars needed too!

Chrysler is apparently learning the hard way that you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drive out in a new Sebring. The $2.99 per gallon gas price guarantee that Chrysler launched last month has apparently been insufficient to actually stimulate sales. People are coming into showrooms, but evidently even a cheap gas offer isn't enough to convince customers to buy Chrysler products. Even with the special deal, Chrysler's sales are apparently down 18-percent for May. We can't fathom why cheap gas wouldn't be adequate inducement to spend the next three years driving a Sebring or Jeep Compass, can you? Hopefully Chrysler will have better luck than GM moving the Durango and Aspen Hybrid when they launch in a few months, because not much else is selling right now.
