Texas is the Future

Fortune Magazine put out its annual list - The Fortune 500.

Last year, the state of Texas pulled out into the lead against New York by having 58 of the 500 largest companies in the U.S. New York fell to second with 55. This year, New York actually gained one, surprising given their financial problems extending well back into 2008. Texas, however, placed 6 additional companies on the list, for a total of 64.

Within Texas, the major metropolitan regions had these totals:

Houston 29
Dallas/Fort Worth 25
San Antonio 5
Austin 3
Pittsburg, El Paso 1 each

Here's a chart with a little historic data:
