MONROE - The federal government's "cash for clunkers" program has helped local auto dealerships over the past few weeks, but as of Monday night, the sales figures for those dealers could become difficult to sustain.The clunkers program ended at 7 p.m., which also was the deadline for dealers to get their paperwork submitted to the federal government's Web site in order for the business owners to be refunded the $3,500 or $4,500 rebate cost they had to pay for each automobile sold under the program.
