For the 10th year in a row, it will cost you more to drive on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The latest toll increase was announced Tuesday.
“Because of today’s action, the most common toll for a passenger vehicle will increase next year from $1.23 to $1.30 for E-ZPass customers and from $1.95 to $2.10 for cash customers,” turnpike officials said in a news release.
