For the first time in 10 years the Delaware River Toll Commission raised prices on eight of their bridges Sunday, including the Trenton-Morrisville Route 1 bridge, New Hope-Lamberville Route 202 bridge, and I-78 bridge.
Tolls for motorists who use the cash lanes will bump from $1 to $3, while E-ZPass riders will have to pay $1.50.
According to the toll bridge commission, the new increase stops current E-ZPass riders from effectively subsidizing the cost to process cash customers.
The toll hike comes at a time when motorists across the nation are paying nearly $3 per gallon of regular-grade gasoline.
AAA Mid-Atlantic said the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.90, down two cents from a week ago. Drivers were paying an average of $2.11 a gallon a year ago at this time.
The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.86, down a penny from last week. Drivers were paying an average of $1.89 a gallon a year ago at this time.
