U-Haul survey suggests young are moving to Pittsburgh

I'm just guessing, but Pittsburgh could be the first stop to towns that are thriving due to fracking in the Marcellus shale formations.
In the question of moving to Pittsburgh, people are voting with their trucks. A study by U-Haul found more of its trucks were arriving in Pittsburgh than leaving town at a greater percentage than anywhere else in the country.

What that means is that more people were renting U-Hauls to move into Pittsburgh than to move out of town. Pittsburgh's growth rate, according to the U-Haul index, was 9.04 percent.
The headline is a little misleading.  Pittsburgh has the highest growth rate in U-Haul rentals compared to those leaving.
