Enslaved Hebrews needed God’s help to flee out of Egypt. Freedom-starved citizens are turning to U-Haul to make their escape.
U-Haul released its yearly report on Jan. 3. The overall results may not be surprising, but the scope of the report is.
The number of people fleeing governmental tyrannies and economic downturns — the two go hand-in-hand — has risen, the report appears to indicate.
With well over 2 million one-way truck rentals taking place annually, U-Haul is an authority on migration trends. Its network of operations covers all 50 states in the U.S. and 10 provinces of Canada.
Even with approximately 176,000 trucks, 126,000 trailers and 46,000 towing devices at their disposal nationwide, the company still ran out of inventory in California last year. Maybe that’s why the net loss of U-Haul trucks in California wasn’t as severe as in 2020. Nevertheless, California remained at the top of the list for outbound migration. Illinois came in second. Pennsylvania took third.
