Taxi fares in Gloucester are set to rise above inflation next week.
Gloucester City Council licensing chiefs will consider plans to raise tariffs by around 6.5 per cent - or as much as 69p.
The last increase was in December 2017.
According to GloucesterLive, the main reason cabbies are asking for the increase is due to rising costs such as replacement parts for their vehicles and insurance premiums.
If the increase is approved, the running mile rate will go up from £1.98 to £2.10 and the cost of one-mile and two-mile journeys will go up to £4.55 and £6.62 from £3.95 and £5.93 respectively.
The soiling charge is also to increase from £65 to £75.
The city council says the increase in charges will make them the second lowest within the county in terms of the running mile cost and third highest when it comes to one-mile and two-mile journeys.
The licensing and enforcement committee will consider the changes on June 15.
