Los Angeles and Long Beach Trade v.2

This is an update to charts I've done previously. The November data is out. I have also modified the charts slightly by adjusting for the growth in our population (to better see what we are doing individually).

Here's the inbound traffic. Ugly is about the only word I'd use to describe that change in trend, not that anyone could have really thought the explosive growth was endlessly sustainable.

Here's the outbound traffic. Our falling dollar is helping here it seems.

Here's the total traffic.

Here's exports as a percent of exports plus imports.

Ever get the feeling that the growth in our imports have hit a wall?
