US Auto Sales

US auto sales released today showed a nice increase y/y in November.  Sales were up about 14% y/y to 14m vehicles on a seasonally adjusted annualized rate.  There seems to be a lot of optimism surrounding the sector, but as the chart below shows, the sales pace is still well off its former levels.  The chart shows sales as a 3 month moving average in order to cut out some noisy months (like during cash for clunkers).
