Efficient String Concatenation in Python

If you've ever created long strings in Python, you may have noticed that string concatenation is slow. There's a great site that tries out the different methods for concatenating strings in python at In a nutshell, I've found this one works best for my operations:
def method5():
  # Example that concatenates numbers
  from cStringIO import StringIO
  file_str = StringIO()
  for num in xrange(loop_count):

  return file_str.getvalue()
