Freight rail is a "derived demand" industry -- demand for the rail service is tied with demand for the products that the railroads haul. Rail traffic, therefore, acts as a solid barometer of the overall health of the economy. Relatively high fuel costs continue to press demand for rail, since railroads are on an average four times more fuel-efficient than trucks. Recent investments in capacity, innovations and use of technology led to service improvements and enhanced reliability within the industry.
