For electric rail, both freight and passenger, a substantial part of the operating cost benefit of electric power is greater efficiency ~ even at similar cost per unit of energy, they would be less expensive to operate than liquid fueled cars and trucks.
And its hard to see how electric cars would be biased to using power during periods when a substantial share of natural gas fired power is required as balancing load.
