General Motors announced today that the company will extend it's popular 100th anniversary employee pricing sale until the end of September.

"We had our best sales month so far in 2008." As a result, he said GM "added 19 additional 2009 models to the eligible list of vehicles because our 2008 stock on dealer lots is rapidly disappearing."
