If you’re planning on riding the Cape May-Lewes Ferry next month expect to pay an extra dollar per vehicle trip.

The surcharge will run through the end of June and is to pay for the rising fuel costs.

WBOC reports that the Delaware River and Bay Authority emphasizes that the extra buck is only per vehicle not for each passenger.

Officials say that those who have already placed their reservations will not be charge the extra dollar.

The television station reports that the last time there was a surcharge was in March of 2014.

Delaware residents could see a surcharge of up to $80 on their personal income taxes for projects to improve the state’s water quality.

A measure has been introduced in the state House of Representatives that would impose a surcharge equal to ten percent of income liabilities.

It would be capped at $40 for individuals and $80 for joint filings.

WBOC reports that the measure would bring in around $20 million to help pay for water and waste water system upgrades over the next five years.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Senate is considering allowing natural gas companies to ask state regulators to impose a $2 surcharge on monthly bills to help recover costs for replacing aging infrastructure.

The Senate is scheduled to take up the bill on Tuesday.

Senators who back the measure say companies need to replace aging pipes to address safety concerns. Opponents say gas companies shouldn't be asking for extra money to do a job they should have been doing all along.
