MIDLAND, TX – Some numbers out of Washington have some folks in the Lone Star State doing a little Texas two-stepping.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis put out its figures for personal income growth from 2008 to 2012.

Midland led the state and nation. The folks in midland had a per-capita income of $83,049 2012, and that was up 23.2% from 2008.

The Houston area, which includes The Woodlands and Sugar Land, did all right, but not great.

Our income went up 5.1%, to $51,004.

The Dallas, Fort Worth area did just a hair better with a per-capita income of $46,136 in 2012, which was up 5.28% over 2008.

And that’s the thing about money, no matter how much there is, there never seems to be enough.
