    Wow,,okay, well, some of what I said could be salvaged, I guess. Yeah, I complained @$50 bucks, $300 would be a deal breaker. Got to pay for this virus mess somehow. Tip of the iceberg, folks.

    Who wants to bet Pennsylvania will raise toll fees for 2022?

    Right. Simple enough. I prefer 80 anyway. There are more resources

    How? The Indiana turnpike is 80/90. PA turnpike is 70/76. Indiana is super easy to get around
     
    D.Tibbitt and Flat Earth Trucker Thank this.

    Ok to be fair, the article did t say it was going to increase 70/76. It was increasing some of the lesser travelled toll roads. There is a list of which ones were going increasing in price

    For the most part, avoiding the toll road in the northeast is easy. Especially the PA ones. I don’t see why anyone in their right mind would run them. Same with the NJ turnpike and NY thruway. Granted it’s a long ride running the 2-lane from Buffalo to Albany.

    Obviously getting into NYC you can’t avoid, but that’s why you charge a premium for it.

    I live in PA and in next 10 years that PA turnpike will cost 1k to drive on it and everyone should just stop paying tolls they can't put as all in jail.
