"The report, reflective of growth patterns in the United States during 2012, was compiled based on nationwide trends in cities of all sizes and reflects communities with more than 5,000 families moving in or out of the area," stated John "J.T." Taylor, president, U-Haul International, Inc. "Growth cities were then determined by calculating the percentage of inbound moves vs. outbound moves for each area."

The U-Haul 2012 Top U.S. Growth Cities Report was compiled from more than 1.6 million U-Haul one-way truck transactions occurring during a recent 12-month period.

The annual mileage of North American U-Haul rental trucks, trailers and tow dollies would move a family to the moon and back again more than 9.9 times per day, every day of the year and could also travel around the Earth more than 177 times per day, every day of the year.
