It's about to cost more to ride a cab in Chicago. A new fuel surcharge goes into effect Monday.The surcharge is designed to help cab drivers offset the rising cost of gas. If the price at the pump stays above $3.20 per gallon for one week, riders will have to pay an additional $1 per ride.

The city council approved the surcharge earlier in April.
