Summary:  All the automotive repair stocks have done well during the recession as the average mileage on vehicles on the roads has continued to climb.  Higher miles - more repairs.  Analysts are softening their projections for several reasons.  Higher gas prices mean less driving.  New car sales increases mean the average mileage of cars on the road may come down.  If the analysts projections for the increases in sales and earnings continue investors could see an annual total return in the 15% to 20% range for O"Reilly Automotive (ORLY).
