Ford (F) announces sales of its Focus hatchback are expected to double Y/Y in February to over 20K units, as high gas prices boost demand for more fuel-efficient cars. The company also says it expects small SUVs such as the Ford Escape and Buick Encore to be an important growth area for the auto industry over the next decade.
