Is there a convenient way to calculate the cost of tolls between two arbitrary points within the United States? I'm planning to take a trip along the Eastern seaboard and will be passing through multiple states with different toll-collecting authorities. The mapping and trip planning resources I've found so far will only indicate whether a particular section of road has tolls, not the price of those tolls. I'm aware that the various toll-collecting authorities post their rates online, but these charts are often difficult to use if you're not already familiar with the area. Isn't there an easier way?

viamichelin.com seems to cover the US, only that every route I try, only mentions $0 in toll. Could either be that I just chose arbitrary roads with no tolls, or that this site does not include toll prices. Hence the comment over a real answer –  andra Aug 27 '12 at 21:12
    
@Andra I noticed this as well. I checked routes that definitely have tolls, so viamichelin.com is not accurate. :-( –  user113215 Aug 27 '12 at 21:13
    
Any chance you could list all the states? I'm finding some calculators but they seem to be per-state only, eg massdot.net/user-cgi/tollcalc.cgi for Massachusetts... –  Mark Mayo Aug 27 '12 at 21:19
    
@MarkMayo I found those as well. Part of my trip will take me through MD, DE, PA, NJ, and NY. I've learned that several states (DE and NY, for example) even have different toll-collecting authorities for the different routes. I was hoping to find a single calculator that would be able to compute the cost based on the portions of the route I will be using, but I suppose it's just a dream. –  user113215 Aug 27 '12 at 21:31

I'm kind of surprised Google Maps doesn't do it. –  Andrew Grimm Sep 5 '12 at 14:57
