Auto Bailout To Cost $3.4 Billion More

A new estimate from the U.S. Treasury Department on Monday shows that the auto industry bailout will cost taxpayers $3.4 billion more than a previous estimate, Reuters reported.

The cost, according to the estimate, is now $25.1 billion, up from $21.7 billion, about a 14 percent hike.


The U.S. has recovered about half of the $80 billion bailout, according to Reuters. Both GM and Chrysler have both returned to profit following the bailout.
