Texas top growth state, says U-HaulTexas top growth state, says U-Haulhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=187682018-01-09T06:00:00Z2018-01-09T17:00:00Z

​​​FORT WORTH – Texas continued its reign ​as America's top growth state during 2017, according to U-Haul data.

Year-over-year arrivals of one-way U-Haul truck rentals rose 1 percent while departures climbed 3 percent from Texas' 2016 numbers. Some of the activity increase can likely be attributed to the active hurricane season, the Fort Worth Business Press said.

Despite a larger increase in departures, arriving trucks still accounted for 50.3 percent of all one-way U-Haul traffic in the Lone Star State. ​

McKinney, Prosper, College Station, Temple, and Kaufman paced Texas' net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks. 

Texas secured the No. 1 growth ranking for 2016 after settling for the No. 39 spot for 2015.​

Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Tennessee rounded out the top five. California overtook Illinois on the list as the biggest net-loss state.
