A year and a half after hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is auctioning off at fire-sale prices thousands of trailers used by storm victims, raising fears among mobile-home dealers that the government will flood the market and depress prices. Some of about 20,000 mobile homes and travel trailers owned by FEMA are housed at the Hope Municipal Airport in Arkansas.Danny Johnston / AP Photo
