ABC News reports that non-Chase customers in Illinois are now being charged $5 to use the bank’s ATM machines. They’re trying out $4 fees at their ATMs in Texas.

The average fee nationwide is $2.60, and Chase’s experiments come just as banking industry lobbyists are pressuring Congress to delay the imposition of fee limits on customers’ debit and credit cards.
