The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has approved an extension to a statewide fuel surcharge for the passenger motor carrier industry. The surcharge was introduced in 2004 as a temporary fix for rising gas costs, but has been renewed every year since its inception because of the continued rising cost of gasoline. The surcharge can be used by taxicabs, paratransit and airport transfer automobiles. The surcharge price changes depending on the price of gasoline and can be found at the PUC's website.
