250,000 cars purchased under the Cash for Clunker sale within the first 4 days of the program according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Secretary LaHood said the program was wildly popular. Went through close to 1 Billion dollars in just 4 days whereas it was suppose to last until November. Maybe that will put a few people back to work... They are looking for ways to extend the program.
