FWIW, Uhaul one-way rental rates are a good way to check out how good the economy is in an area.
If it is cheap to rent a U-haul from an area, that area is a popular destination for one way trips, and has a surplus of trailers.
If it is expensive to rent from an area, that area has very few trailers because more people are leaving than are coming in.
To demonstrate, if you rent a 6x12 U-haul trailer, and drive it from Pasadena Dallas one way, it will rent for $549.
If you go from Dallas to Pasadena with the same trailer, it is $299.
Shows a lot more people are coming to Dallas than to Pasadena.
