Some things have gone up, some have gone WF 'way up! Where do railroad rates fit in the scale? Actually, because rail rates are fixed by the Phi Interstate Commerce Commission, they had Qg lagged far behind in the postwar zoom in prices. m m m A temporary freight increase effective July 1, 1946 was granted, and was included in a total . increase of 17.5% effective January 1,1947. *i Meanwhile, operating costs had jumped still farther ahead, so the ICC granted another rate Qj increase that averaged about 8.9% and was effec- fcjfi tive October 13, 1947. Does that sound like a lot? Please note this.' In spi tc of increases, the average revenue received , by the railroads today for hauling one ton of J freight one mile is only 1.065^—16.5% below the f average in 1921 after the first World Wjir. Freight charges are still a minor item in the j cost of things you buy. Surely the extra fraction i of a cent per ton-mile is a modest price for keep-! ing the country's main transportation agency in j top condition to provide essential service. A hometown industry—aiding your community by in taxes, payrolls and services.
