From the NY Post:
Big rigs that carry everything from food to medicine into the city will get slammed with monster-sized toll hikes on Port Authority bridges and tunnels -- and the massive increases will certainly get passed on to consumers.
New York’s crossings are already the costliest in the country, but a new series of toll hikes the Port Authority approved yesterday will see them balloon over the next four years, beginning next month.
Everyone who uses the PA’s facilities was hit with an increase, but truckers were hit the hardest.
Cash tolls on a 5-axle tractor trailer -- the type of truck commonly used to make deliveries -- will increase from $40 to $65 starting next month, eventually climbing to a whopping $105 per trip in 2015.
90 percent of goods sold in the Big Apple are brought in by truck...
Big Apple businesses -- already paying exorbitant fees to have their goods trucked in -- are preparing for the worst.
