  (Note: As the above table shows, from the time that the IFS was introduced TSA has used the original BNSF baseline of $1.24 per gallon as the zero threshold past which an IFS is applied. Thus $1.24 per gallon of inland fuel cost has been absorbed by carriers and can be considered as already embedded in base freight rates.)
