Used car prices went up every month in 2009, fueled by a decrease in trade-ins and lower inventories from Cash for Clunkers. Analysts believe prices will start to level off in 2010 as new car sales increase at an expected rate of 15%.

While it is good news, these same analysts say it will take several years before supply returns to the levels of the previous decade.
