D.C. Taxi Surcharge Ending
Commission Chairman Leon J. Swain Jr. took the action on Tuesday as a result of declining gas prices. The surchage was imposed to help help drivers and cab companies defray the cost of fuel when prices jumped this year. The measure was scheduled to expire in January, but the rapid plunge in prices spurred the chairman's emergency action.
So when you get into a cab after 12:01 a.m. Thursday, you should no longer see the Gasoline Surcharge Sticker that announced the surchage. Instead, there should be a notice about the chairman's action.
