Some Chicago cab drivers are actually fighting a fare surcharge set to begin Monday.

The surcharge would add $1 to each ride when gas prices are as high as they are right now.

Seven cabbies have asked a judge to stop increase. They say it will encourage some people to not take cabs for short trips and drivers will end up making less money.
