(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania Turnpike drivers will soon have to dig a little deeper to pay tolls after an across-the board rate increase was improved by the turnpike commission.

The agency approved the 6 percent toll hike Tuesday for both E-ZPass and cash-paying customers.

The higher tolls take effect at the start of 2019.

An average fare under E-ZPass will increase from $1.30 to $1.38.

The typical cash fare will increase from $2.10 to $2.25.
