IHS Automotive reports that U.S. auto plants may operate at close to 81% of capacity in 2012 after falling to a level as low as 49% in 2009. Production is kicking in after  light-vehicle sales in the U.S. knocked out their 2nd consecutive double-digit gain - outpacing even China's rate. Another interesting variable for the auto sales formula is the irreversible tidbit that the average age of the vehicles in the U.S. is on the high end. Are bigger profits in store for GM, F, TM, and HMC?
