    Does any body know why UNP is down so much?

    UNP is down because RR's are very efficient transporters, on steel rails, & because trains are long and skinny with not much frontal air resistance. They have a low specific fuel consumption (ie gals. per ton mile). When price of fuel goes down then truckers get more of the hauling business because they have the advantage of being quicker and able to serve more places. It's all fuel related... Brooks Doege
