George Bush is from Connecticut. He's a fake Texan.

If Houston reaches the amount of people that the original poster predicted I think its freeways will start to explode

I really think the dark horse here is New Orleans and San Antonio. NOLA with Bobby Jindal help is going to boom with all the natural resources around it. Pound for Pound New Orleans have more natural resources than any other city in the country. San Antonio is the most underrated city in the country. With the Austin metro only 10 miles away will be a powerful metro area

The Chicagoland area will soon consume a LOT of cities along the west coast of lake michigan, so it will probably stay in the top 3 for a while. NYC will be in the top 3 too, but where, I couldn't tell you. LA I think, is a different story, that california valley doesn't have the space for 10 million more people, and considering that LA already has air pollution problems, people aren't going to want to live there once the population increases by a couple million.

LA will stay in the top 3 along with Chicago and New York, pollution or no pollution.

I'm not implying that LA won't stay in the top 3, I'm saying that it might slow down growth and possibly lose out to chicago for the #2 spot.
