Las Vegas Cab Fare Increase

Taxi fares in Las Vegas are going up again. The Nevada Taxicab Authority recently approved a 20-cent-per-mile fuel surcharge. The extra fare is expected to go into effect at the beginning of May and will add about $1 to the average Las Vegas cab ride.

While I understand the need for taxi companies to compensate for fuel prices, I doubt they will be removing the new surcharge if gas prices go back down. It's a one way street.
