WASHINGTON, July 30 (Reuters) - The U.S. government will not suspend its $1 billion auto sales incentive even though confirmed sales and pending transactions neared the program limit of 250,000 vehicles much sooner than expected, an Obama administration official said on Thursday night. The official, who was not authorized to speak for attribution, said the White House was working with Congress to try to extend funding for the program.
