(Harrisburg) -- Tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike are going up for the seventh straight year. 

The turnpike commission has approved a 5 percent increase that will take effect in January. 

Officials say the increase will be applied evenly to cash and electronic E-ZPass tolls, marking the first time in three years that cash tolls are not subject to a steeper increase. 

 About three out of four turnpike drivers now use E-ZPass. 

The new rates will nudge the cost of the most common toll for passenger vehicles by a nickel to $1.09 for E-ZPass users and by a dime to $1.70 for cash customers. 

The most common toll for tractor-trailers will increase from $8.62 to $9.05 for EZPass users and from $12.15 to $12.80 for cash customers.
