Do you have an accent?

I'm from Long Island, or "lawn-guyland" if you have an accent. I don't really have one (unless I get angry) and I wonder what gives. Some people from my hometown (a beach town on the north shore) have New Yawk accents, and some don't. I am now aware of consciously trying to get rid of an accent, I just never had it. Does this happen in other parts of the country, like the South? Why do some people pick up accents while others speak without them?
