New York has clearly peaked and is now headed down. A few other states (New Jersey, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee) show signs of peaking, but it’s a little too early to say for sure. Others are still heading steadily upward. Overall, I can’t say that this looks especially promising. I wouldn’t be surprised if the overall US number stays plateaued for a while.
