DETROIT (AP) _ DaimlerChrysler AG said Wednesday U.S. sales fell 9.1 per cent in July from a year ago in what was expected to be a difficult month for the industry.

Chrysler Group said its sales were down 8.4 per cent in July, while Mercedes-Benz said U.S. sales were down 13.9 per cent from the same month a year ago.

The Associated Press reports unadjusted figures, calculating the percentage change in the total number of vehicles sold in one month compared with the same month a year earlier. Some automakers report percentages adjusted for sales days. There were 24 sales days last month and 25 in July 2006.
