While signs indicate that the worst of the recession may be over, only six metropolitan areas across the country are expected to regain their pre-recession employment levels by the end of 2009, according to projections from IHS Global Insight, a leading economic forecaster. Most of the country - 286 of 325 metro areas covered in the IHS analysis - aren't likely to regain their pre-recession employment levels until at least 2012. This map shows what year economic forecasters say each metro area will return to employment levels seen before the recession.
If you live in one of the bright green areas--you are in luck. For the rest of you looks like a rocky road ahead until 2014 or beyond. If you live in any of the white areas, you are screwed!

We are also in 2014 for the forecast. But keep in mind that this was fore-casted before the effects of Cap and Trade will be felt!
