Just make sure to fill up your gas tank outside of Charlotte I guess, do you still think the gas stations in Charlotte are scamming you?

I got my wake-up call today. I now have to drive uptown every Monday morning. Whether I leave at 7AM or 8AM, Albemarle road (485 Inner) to Uptown takes roughly an hour.

As the HWY system improves, there will be a movement to outer areas of the region. With the opening of I-85 north of Concord, in a few years, The Rowan County area will have more growth, as it has the second largest lake in NC. The land around the lake is still cheap and with lake access. I think it will stay toll free, unlike the attempt to Toll I-77 (Lake Norman is getting crowded with land costs going up).

No matter what people like cities and the areas around them, growth will happen.

Maybe "(SS)Super-spender" Biden will build us a subway. He can hire those poor individuals that lost their pipeline jobs to do the digging? That way we can continue to grow and have transportation to accommodate it.

Yet, they will be rented. There are lots of high paying jobs around. It isn't 1980.
