General Motors to close four plants

General Motors, the US automobile giant, is to close four North American truck plants and shift its manufacturing focus to smaller vehicles due to higher Gasoline prices.

The four plant closings will save $1 billion a year and cut North American capacity by 700,000 for trucks.

Production output will end at plants in Oshawa, Ontario; Moraine, Ohio; Janesville, Wisconsin; and Toluca, Mexico. The plantsĀ  will close in 2009 and 2010.
