CBSNews -- The big winter storms we've seen lately are causing some big deals on car lots and a new study says there's a connection between money and love.

The markets are closed for President's Day. Wall Street traders will return Tuesday.

On Friday some disappointing economic news couldn't keep the markets from gaining ground.

The Dow climbed nearly 127 points on Friday
The NASDAQ gained 3 points

The big storms that recently hit several states are leading to some big discounts at car dealerships.

Weather in January and February slowed showroom traffic and sales. So, auto makers are cutting prices to boost business.

Ford and GM are offering incentives on their pickups.

Honda and Toyota are discounting many of their popular mid size sedans.

Friday was Valentine’s Day and they say money can't buy love, but new research begs to differ.

The study from retail analyst Mintel found the more money you make, the more likely you are to find a romantic partner.

96 percent of people who make over $83,000 a year say they been in love, but only 83 percent of people who make less than $16,000 year can say the same.
