WASHINGTON (AP) - Parking on the street is about to get a lot more expensive in the nation’s capital.

The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/1NsSaLr ) that the city is preparing to set hourly parking rates $2.30 citywide. The change brings the cost of parking in non-commercial areas of the District on par with those in higher demand zones such as downtown.

Parking rates in heavily commercial areas will go from $2 to $2.30 per hour. In residential areas, the rates will more than double from 75 cents to $2.30.

The increase was ordered by the D.C. Council last year and will take effect June 1. The city says it will generate up to $2 million in fiscal year 2016.
