$80 to park? Inflated parking prices welcome fans near Minute Maid Park

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- As the Astros open the American League Division Series at Minute Maid Park, we've seen some outrageous prices for fans looking to park.

You think $20 is a lot, how about $80?

"I guess it's the playoffs, everybody is going to try and take advantage," a fan told ABC13.

Others making their way inside the game didn't mind paying the inflated price to park.

"How much did you pay just now?" ABC13's Mayra Moreno asked.

"$60," the fan replied.

"That's a pretty big deal," Moreno said.

"It was well worth it," the fan added. "It's closer to the stadium and we've been waiting for this for years."

For those headed out to Game 2 on Friday, be prepared to shell out a lot of cash to park near the stadium.
