Freight Railroads are very fuel efficient, and better for the environment.
A freight train hauls one ton of freight an average of 457 miles on one gallon of fuel- more than three times farther than trucks.
A study finds that freight rail gallons of fuel is about 3 times less than trucking Coast to Coast:
Trucks will use 27 Gallons of fuel per ton.
Trains will use just 7 Gallons of fuel per ton.
(AAR Estimate based on U.S. DOT Data)
Because a freight train can do the work of 280 or more trucks, railroads reduce highway gridlock.
