DITY move reimbursement going down?

We are moving from Louisiana to Norfolk next month, and doing a DITY move. We were quoted $5500 for 9,000 pounds of stuff. This just seems way too low. Two years ago we moved from Louisiana to Texas...a much shorter distance, and we were paid $7000 (after taxes). Does anyone know why the payments are going down so much? It is about 1,100 miles. Has anyone recently done a DITY move with around the same amount of miles and pounds? I would love to hear what you got...if you don't mind sharing.

I tried the below calculator to no avail:

Still have questions? Please see your Transportation Office for assistance.

Its entirely possible that your military branches have been told to tighten their belts due to the state of the US economy.
