The fuel surcharge on the cost of a taxicab ride in D.C. is set to expire this week. The $1 fuel surcharge, which was imposed in March of 2011, runs out at midnight Wednesday.

Gas prices have been falling and that projections indicate a further slide is likely throughout the summer, according to the the D.C. Taxicab Commission. Ron Linton, the commission's chairman, says the group will continue to track gas prices through the summer and fall. If conditions change, he says the commission "will consider appropriate action."

The commission says the current average daily price of gas in Washington has declined by 19 cents to $3.66.
