Port of Baltimore officials say automobile business there is starting to recover.

James White, the Executive Director of the Maryland Port Administration, says the bottom dropped out of the shipping business about a year ago, but the volume of ships is growing again. White says they've seen ships returning to the port, though they aren't as full as they were in the beginning of 2008.

White says the number of cruises sailing from Baltimore is growing. He says there were 28 sailings last year and this year there are 79.
