The cost of driving on the Pennsylvania turnpike has gone up again.
Tolls for cash paying customers went up 10-percent. The increase is just 2-percent for drivers using E-Z Pass.
The new rates, which took effect Jan. 6, are expected to generate roughly $25 million in new revenue in 2013.
The toll increase is needed to satisfy the turnpike's obligation to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to help address a transportation-funding shortfall, according to a news release put out by the PA Turnpike Commission.
More changes are in the works as turnpike officials consider the possibility of eliminating toll plazas and cash payments.
