GM to temporarily idle SUV plant 

General Motors plans to idle production at its SUV plant in the Dayton suburb of Moraine for a week next month to better match production with demand. The plant's four-thousand workers will go on temporary layoff June 14th and return to work June 21st. The plant produces mid-sized sport utility vehicles, including the GMC Envoy, Chevrolet Trailblazer and Buick Rainier. GM spokesman Dan Flores says GM is temporarily halting production at the plant to adjust to demand, which is affected by the intense competition in the mid-sized SUV market. Flores says sales of GM's mid-sized SUVs remain solid and haven't really been affected by recent hikes in gasoline prices.
