07.16.10 | FL News Team

(Harrisburg, PA)  --  When the toll increase goes into effect in January on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, it will become the most expensive long toll road in the nation.  On Wednesday, the Turnpike Commission approved a 3% hike for EZ-Pass users and 10% for cash customers.  That means the cash cost of driving the roadway, which cuts across the entire southern half of the state, will be 8.5 cents per mile.  Currently, Pennsylvania is tied with New Jersey for the costliest turnpike, at seven-point-seven-cents per mile.
