for may y-o-y traffic is off by about 4% (both regular carloads and intermodal are down).  

for year to date (first 5 months) y-o-y carloads are flat (not including containers).  but container traffic is down over 6%.  

stagnant economy combined with big time inflation.  a bad combination.  

of course some of the drop in container traffic may be due to the continued shutdowns in china.  not sure of the %.
