“Dear PoP,

I’ve recently had some mixed messages on whether or not cabs can still charge the $1 gas surcharge. A couple of nights ago I was in a cab that didn’t charge it. When I asked him about it, he said that it ended on July 25 and that drivers should have stopped charging it then.

However a cab this morning charged me for it and said that the surcharge hasn’t ended.

Not sure if you or your readers have any insight, but I’d love to stop paying that extra dollar! Or at least know if I should be paying it.”

While the original $1 surcharge did expire on July 25th – it was extended again:

“The DC taxicab fuel surcharge became effective as of July 27, 2011 and is valid for up to 120 days and is scheduled to expire on November 17, 2011.”
