The US car scrappage scheme know as the ‘cash for clunkers’ plan will end next week after the funds ran out. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced on Thursday that after a successful run, the cash for clunkers program will come to a close on Monday, August 24th at 8 p.m. The scheme gave owners of old cars and lorries up to $4,500 towards a new, more fuel efficient vehicle in exchange for their old model.
