No Increase In Ferry Prices Yet

For many across Eastern Carolina, taking the ferry is a vital part of their day. So what impact will the high prices have on that trip? The North Carolina Ferry System consumes thousands of gallons of fuel per day, running eight separate routes up and down coastal North Carolina. Despite the spike in fuel costs, ferry officials say as of right now, there is no talk of raising fares or cutting back routes. Officials say a ferry's tank is typically filled once a day.
