LUZERNE COUNTY, Pennsylvania – As of January 6, the toll will enter into Pennsylvania Turnpike.

This is the 11th year in a row, prices have risen.

6 said that this was a big jump in prices.

"Every year But it seems every year that it adds up and yes, it's true, I'm coming out of here at the end, and I think it's $ 12.70, that's a lot of money Way, "said Gary Nestor of Dushore.

While some people are not fans of growth, others do not mind.

"I think even if prices go up as long as everything stays the same The rest areas are in good condition, you pay for them," said Jack Weidner of New York.

Turnpike officials say the raises pay a compulsory fee, which pays the road system to PennDOT to aid the transportation in the state.

Officials say the increase also helps maintain the turnpike, but the drivers do not believe the money will improve the road.

"If you have seen the roads improve, the bridges will improve and they will get better, then I will not have a problem. However, with the increases, the roads are just as bad as they used to be and the rates are still rising," said Nestor,
