According to WTOP, beginning June 20 DC taxicab riders will be spared the fuel surcharge enacted over one year ago to compensate for high gas prices. The $1 per trip charge was imposed in March 2011 but will be suspended.
Officials will continue to monitor gas prices and change enforcement of the surcharge as they deem necessary, Taxicab Commission Chairman Ron Linton said.
