Average ATM surcharge hits a new high
ATM surcharges hit a new record for the third consecutive survey.
The average automated teller machine fee assessed by institutions,
on those who aren't account holders, is $1.64, up from the previous
records of $1.60 in spring 2006 and $1.54 in fall 2005. Since the
last survey, 22 banks increased the fee, compared to six banks that
reduced the fees they charge.
