Five Road freight transport and shipping freight rates have implemented market-regulated prices, price level is mainly determined by market supply and demand. But in the long run, as oil prices rose sharply, or remain at high levels for a long time, operators heavy cost factor will still burden downstream by raising tariffs. At present, the Zhejiang part of the road transportation individual line rate has been rising.
Six, subsidies

At present, Tianjin, Heilongjiang, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Yunnan, Gansu, Ningxia, Qinghai, Xinjiang and central subsidies are in place, have been working on subsidy programme or subsidies allocated to departments in charge of industry, departments actively providing subsidies.

Problems in seven,
At present, the price authorities divert freight between the main problems encountered:
First, favorable price measures are market factors of supply and demand. Areas such as Guangzhou reflects taxi prices are already high, through adjustment of taxi transport prices or fuel surcharges ease transport by way of contradiction, easily lost taxi customers, increase driver business difficulties. And if the parts to be in government guidance prices floating within the ease the impact of rising oil prices on road passenger transport, but due to fierce competition in the market, the practical implementation of the level of fares and to increase the operator all the increases in oil prices.
Second, rural roads and rural passenger transport subsidy payments. Reflected in some places, road and waterway passenger transport services in rural areas are farmers, tolerance is weak, the incremental costs caused by rising fuel prices it is difficult to raise ticket prices ease, the State also requires that this part of the tariff remained stable. But the central financial subsidy cost of 50%, local financial support subsidy financing, the implementation is very difficult, operators face difficulties. Inter-island shipping passenger transport operators in Zhejiang Province has been provided to the Government price requirements.
Third, oil prices increased the difficulty of stabilizing fares during Spring Festival. During the spring of 2007, Highway bus fares without the measures were in place, to good effect, widely welcomed by the community. After the oil price adjustments, and general increase in operating costs, fares during Spring Festival has been difficult to maintain 2007 levels.
For the above-mentioned problems, pricing departments at all levels to continue to combine the local actual situation, under the unified leadership of the local party committees and Governments, in close collaboration with the relevant departments, and comprehensive measures, reduce the burden on operators, defuse the impact of oil price hikes on the transportation industry, we will strictly control the transport price rises, maintaining industry and social stability.
