In Norway, taxi rates are often higher during the night or weekend compared to weekday office hours. Is this true for the United States? I can't find anything about it on taxifarefinder.

Taxi ? You mean cab. Lemme chime in with them Alabama taxis. In Birmingham, its $2 a mile. That is, of course, if you ever manage to get a cab! – happybuddha May 3 '13 at 13:11

Typically, yes, although it undoubtedly depends on where in the US you are. For example, in New York City, there are night-time and peak-hour weekday surcharges of $0.50 and $1 respectively.
