(KSL News) -- Most Utahns think U-T-A should raise fares to combat high gas prices.
An exclusive Dan Jones poll for K-S-L and the Deseret Morning News found 71 percent approve of a temporary 25-cent surcharge on one-way transit rides. UTA proposed a 25-cent hike in October.
The agency says it faces six million dollars in additional fuel costs. Without the surcharge, UTA says it might be forced to permanently raise fares or drastically cut service.
