Oakland Auto Shipping
Oakland is a city in as well as the county seat of Alameda County; according to the last official US Census conducted, the population of the city stands at just under 40,000 residents, which makes it not only the eighth largest city in the state of California but also the 44th largest city in the entire United States. It lies just eight miles east of San Francisco.
It was founded in 1772 by a Spanish conquistador. Originally a small mission, it quickly grew into a minor supply depot for Spanish sailors, due to its location on the bay, and after Mexico ceded the state of California to the United States the city became a major manufacturing town. Over the years the city has grown into one of the largest manufacturing cities on the west coast; however, this growth has declined since the 1980’s as many manufacturing jobs began going overseas. Oakland today however is much different than it was in the 1970’s, with the city council putting emphasis on urban renewal and new developments.
It shares many of the same weather patterns that San Francisco enjoys, including relatively mild summers and cool winters. During the summer months, average highs in the city normally only reach into the low 80’s during the day with overnight lows dropping down into the 60’s. During the winter months average highs reach into the mid 50’s with overnight lows dropping into the 40’s.
