The different pronunciations may have more to do with socio-economic levels
than geography.  In New York, anyway, you typically heard news reporters,
e.g., saying "root." When I worked in the Post Office in Queens in the 1970s,
on the other hand, the mail carriers universally refrred to their delivery
routes as "routs."
