total traffic down 13% y-o-y (for the third week of june). (u.s.)
total traffic down 13% for the first half of the year y-o-y (u.s.)
total traffic for u.s., and canada, and mexico down about 20%
so yes we are still in a recession folks.
the only discrepency i see is a quirk in the report (i did not sort thru it to figure this out).
total traffic is down 13%, but total carloads is down over 20%. not sure the difference between traffic and carloads in this report.
