This has been mentioned before, but it merits repeat mentions.
The national park lifetime Senior Pass price is going up from its current $10 to $80.
According to The Salt Lake Tribune:
Senior citizens have been getting a pretty good deal from the National Park Service.
For $10, people age 62 and older can receive a lifetime pass to enter Utah's Mighty 5, Yellowstone, Yosemite and all the other national parks.
But the Baby Boomers are about to have a little sticker shock. Their lifetime passes are about to increase to $80. The AARP reports that it's the first time since 1994 the price has been increased.
Congress passed legislation near the end of 2016 that increases the lifetime price for seniors to the same price most others pay for an annual pass. Seniors also have the option of paying $20 for an annual pass.
