The Parking Authority approves a $1 surcharge ($3 on airport trips)

Philly’s cushy, genuine-leather, high-tech, high-end-outfitted cabs will start charging an extra $1 on rides ($3 for airport trips) tonight. And by that the Scoop means every crappy taxi trip you take just got more expensive. The Parking Authority approved the temporary (sure it is) surcharge because of high gas prices. [Daily News]
