If you travel the Illinois tollway system, starting Jan 1, 2012 you will be hit with a 86% increase in your travels. This applies to anything except large trucks. So many daily users of our tollway system are starting to look for different roads to travel to and from work. This might work for a while, but it also might add 15 to 30 minutes in travel time, thus using more gas in there travels. Saving a gallon of gas per commute on the tollway system will pay for that increase in your toll.
As noted, everything we use and buy costs more today, so boon docking when camping might become a more popular option.
I have never driven on a toll road. I pay to drive on the roads everytime I buy gas. I will take an alternate route or even sit on a feeder and wait for a light before I pay any more to the government. If I burn more gas, that's just how I roll. It's principle.
The Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike are also having a toll increase starting Jan 1st. Beware that if you are a motorhome (2 axle) towing a car means you are a class 4 and the tolls are higher.
Like some area toll roads that charge for the motorhome and the regular toll for the car. Always comes out cheaper.
