If your commute includes an Oklahoma Turnpike, better grab some extra change because turnpike tolls are going up today.

Cash customers will pay between five to 25 cents more at each toll on all ten toll roads.

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority says they only make up about 20 percent of drivers on the turnpikes.

And if you have a Pikepass, this will not affect you.

The full length of the Cherokee Turnpike will cost you $3.

The entire Muskogee Turnpike from Broken Arrow to I-40 will cost you $3.50.

So with the new changes, expect to pay a little bit more.

Cash customers saw the first and largest toll increase within the 'Driving Forward Initiative two years ago.. That was about 12 percent.
