The report delineates some of the important factors relating to the costs of transporting fossil fuels from regions of production to sites of consumption. The costs of shipping coal have been presented in a quantified fashion for selected producing area to areas of consumption. The costs of shipping residual fuel oil and natural gas from domestic and foreign sources to New York and San Francisco Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas are also provided. The collected transportation data were stratified to determine the general effects stratification had upon transportation costs. Economics of haul for coal do exist for longer versus shorter distances, larger trainload versus smaller trainload sizes, and company-owned car ownership versus railroad car ownership. Most of the rates for the longer voyages for the tanker and barge transportation of residual oil also show economies of haul. (Author)
