Penske: Tampa Bay area ranks high for people moving in

The Tampa Bay area was the No. 2 metro area for people moving to a new destination, according to the Penske Truck Rental company.

Only Atlanta scored higher in Penske's annual analysis of its one-way consumer truck rental reservations.

For the first time since it began the analysis four years ago, Penske included the Sarasota area in Tampa Bay, which helped vault the metro area to the No. 2 spot.

Others in the Top 10: Dallas/Fort Worth (3), Orlando (4), Phoenix (5), Houston (6), Seattle (7), Chicago (8), Denver (9), Las Vegas (10)

"We have seen a continued migration of Penske Truck Rental customers from the Northeast and Midwest parts of the U.S. into these areas," said Don Mikes, Penske senior vice president of rental.

Atlanta has been No. 1 for four years in a row.
