**Gas Prices and Favorable Economic Conditions Great for Autozone!**

AutoZone, Inc. (NYSE: AZO), a retailer and a distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States, will report fiscal Q2 results on March 3. The company will announce its results before the market opens, with analysts expecting earnings of $6.37 per share. During the same period last year the company earned $5.63; and the stock is up 2.9% on the year. The stock had reported positive earnings surprises in three of the trailing four quarters with an average beat of 0.74%.

The auto industry as a whole continues to improve, and people are once again spending on both car purchases, as well as repairs and upgrades to their current vehicles. However, there are mixed results from the company's main competitors with already presented reports -- Advance Auto Parts (AAP) recently posted weaker than expected results, a sign that things may not be great for the sector as a whole – but on the other hand, Genuine Parts (GPC) was able to top estimates on both the top and bottom line.

It appears that lower gas prices have likely resulted in more driving miles for cars on the road, which in turn leads to higher demand for parts, which leads to the belief that the current economic landscape is favorable for AutoZone.
