What would be affected by a U.S. rail strike if it happens in early of Dec 2022?

As the freight trains transport about 40% of the nation's freight each year, vital goods like shipments of grain and other crops, chemicals like fertilizer, three-quarters of new cars, roughly 70% of the nation's coal, and 30% of packaged food; in addition to causing havoc on supply chains across the nation, driving up prices and creating a political mess just before Christmas if workers walk out.

So, if you switched to road freights, would the customer experience an increase in freight rates and a truck shortage?
