$20 to park at Multnomah Falls?

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon


Welcome to the age of peak pricing.

The private lot near Multnomah Falls plans to charge $5 to $20 to park near the number one tourist destination in Oregon.  The $20 will be for during the highest point in the season — a new trend called peak pricing or surge pricing.

You may soon see this elsewhere in Oregon.

Oregon is trying to push highway tolling at 8 locations in the greater Portland Metro area where the tolls would charge different prices during the day as a way to pressure people to to stop driving.


Just this year, Wendy’s considered changing menu prices during the time of day based on high traffic times.
