(KSL News) -- Utah Transit Authority may not increase fares, at least for now.

UTA says the recent drop in fuel prices might be enough that the agency will not need to impose a 25-cent fuel surcharge.

The fare increase is included in UTA's 2006 budget, but officials say they also assumed diesel would cost $2.50 per gallon next year. The latest fuel buy was only $1.71.

As long as gas prices stay below $2.20, it won't need to add a surcharge.
