    I need to find one businesses (in transport) that have had their costs increase over the past few years and one that has had its costs fallen, where can I get this information?

    Also wouldn't all businesses costs increase because of fuel prices?

    Have a look at companies annual reports. Google a company you're interested in and go from there.

    As for the fuel costs increasing it's possible, however they may have made cut backs elsewhere (staff, raw materials, utility bills etc) which balances it out/decreases costs.

    Look for economic profit vs accounting profit, behavioural theory, profit satisficing...
