    Andy, I suspect the money comes from two different accounts. Rebates come from a pre-funded marketing account, while product costs fall under manufacturing.
    GM has already started to reduce the rebates offered on current products, and I'd expect to see even fewer rebates in the future (especially if the situation in Japan creates a shortage of competitor's products).

    This makes no sense, every GM car sold has a rebate on it and a substantial one to boot.
    Why would you need to raise prices? Just lower the rebate by the $123 or whatever.
    This is so dumb.
