National Parks Increase Entrance Fees

Laramie, WY – As of the first of May, Yellowstone National Park is one of several parks to raise its entrance fees. Single cars will now pay $25, up from $20 dollars, to drive into the park. But Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash says the cost cutting will not affect visitors. The fee increases come on the heels of nationwide park service belt-tightening, as well as an effort to charge wildlife photographers, documentarians, and other moviemakers one hundred fifty ($150) dollars a day, up from just two hundred ($200) dollars a year, to work in parks.
