More than two years after its original bid, Hertz agreed Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012, to buy Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. for about $2.3 billion, giving it more ways to attract travelers and expand its international presence. It will also give the company a leg up against competition from an increasing number of smaller competitors. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File) ORG XMIT: NY119
