It’s starting to get crowded around here. 

Every time I make the trip to Dallas-Fort Worth or Austin, I’m amazed at the amount of growth both areas are experiencing. In fact, I was just on the north side of Fort Worth on Sunday and I couldn’t help but marvel at all of the new construction that was going on in the area.

One of my older sisters lived in Denton back in the 80s when I was a kid. Back then when we would go visit her, the drive to Dallas or Fort Worth from Denton was mostly a country drive. And while there’s still a little bit of countryside between Denton and Fort Worth, there’s not much. 

To say that area is booming right now would be an understatement. It’s growing so fast that infrastructure is struggling to keep up. That’s why there’s endless road construction going on in DFW. There’s just not enough room on the roads for all of the traffic. 

And it doesn’t look like the unprecedented growth is going to stop any time soon. 

That’s because, for the second straight year, Texas tops the list of U-Haul's most one-way rentals, according to Fox 4 News. John Taylor, U-Haul International president said the trend is on par with 2022: 

The 2022 trends in migration followed very similar patterns to 2021 with Texas, Florida, the Carolinas and the Southwest continuing to see solid growth. We still have areas with strong demand for one-way rentals. While overall migration in 2021 was record-breaking, we continue to experience significant customer demand to move out of some geographic areas to destinations at the top of our growth list.

Now, if you’re like me, you’re probably wondering which state is at the bottom of the list. That would be California.

Sounds like the Golden State ain’t so golden anymore.
