Not enough U-Haul trucks for fleeing Californians in 2021 amid ongoing blue-to-red flight: report
Red states are top 5 gainers in U-Haul Growth Index signaling migration trends by measuring net difference between one-way entries and exits of the company’s rental trucks for each state.
The U-Haul Growth Index, an annual report that determines growth by calculating the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a state versus leaving in a calendar year, found that California had the largest net losses in one-way U-Haul trucks in 2021, followed by Illinois in 49th place.
Texas took the top spot for growth in 2021, followed closely by Florida. According to the report, “arrivals made up 50.2% of all one-way U-Haul traffic” last year in the Lone Star state. The five biggest gainers were all red states, with Tennessee, South Carolina and Arizona rounding out the top five behind the Lone Star and Sunshine states
