Revenue from tolls at the Bay Bridge has fallen more than 3 percent this year.
An analysis by The (Annapolis, Md.) Capital shows about a quarter million fewer cars crossed the twin spans in the first seven months of this year compared to the same period in 2007.
The drop is another sign that high gas prices have changed commuting and discretionary driving habits.
If the trend continues for the rest of 2008, the Maryland Transportation Authority would collect about $1 million less from tolls on the bridge than it did in 2007. Authority spokeswoman Lindsay Reilly says operations won't be affected.
