    Suppose a proposed new road to be constructed between Raleigh and Morehead City will lower the average cost per trip by car from $5 to $4. Currently, 500,000 trips are made between the two cities per year. An estimate indicates that, all other things being equal, the new road will increase the number of trips per year to 600,000. Calculate the annual benefits to motorists of the new road as based on their willingness to pay.
