The Houston Chronicle is reporting that officials are thinking about increasing toll road fees because they need more money for other projects. Although it's unclear what price increases are being considered, the newspaper says officials are trying to keep the numbers round.

That's because if the cost is an uneven amount, it could create more traffic congestion while booth operators make change.

The last rate hike was in 2007.
