The most expensive regular toll for canal passage to date was charged on May 16, 2008 to the Disney Magic, which paid US$331,200.
The least expensive toll was 36 cents to American adventurer Richard Halliburton, who swam the canal in 1928.
The highest fee for priority passage charged through the Transit Slot Auction System was US$220,300, paid on August 24, 2006 by the Panamax tanker Erikoussa, bypassing a 90-ship queue waiting for the end of maintenance works on the Gatun locks, thus avoiding a seven-day delay. The normal fee would have been just US$13,430.

I have to avoid play today, for some reason it took me to the bottom of the thread and I saw all the answers.
