Travelers Shift to Rail as Cost of Fuel Rises. Amtrak set records in May 2008 for number of passengers and for ticket revenues. New York Times

A notable accomplishment as May is not usually a strong travel month. It looks like the boost is mainly in Amtrak's long-distance trains as they already sold out for some days this summer.
