Amtrak Has Record Month As Travelers Shift To Rail Due To Fuel Prices
New York Times:
Record prices for gasoline and jet fuel should be good news for Amtrak, as travelers look for alternatives to cut the cost of driving and flying.
And they are good news, up to a point.
Amtrak set records in May, both for the number of passengers it carried and for ticket revenues -- all the more remarkable because May is not usually a strong travel month.
