Fees for US passports are about to pop way up

It seems few things are escaping the scourge of inflation these days -- and that will soon include US passports. On December 27, the fee for a US passport book will shoot up by $20 for all customers, the US State Department has announced.
In a tweet, the State Department said, "The increased fee is necessary to ensure we continue to produce one of the most secure travel and identity documents in the world." There are several personal factors that go into the cost calculation -- including the type of passport you want, whether you're renewing or getting your first one, and how fast you need it.
