Want to get money out of an ATM that's not at your bank? It'll cost you more than it did 12 months ago.

The average fee for using an out-of-network ATM is $4.35 per transaction, up 5 percent over the last year and 23 percent over the past five years, according to a survey released Monday by Bankrate.com. Of the 10 largest banks and thrifts in 25 large U.S. markets, Phoenix had the highest average fee, $4.96 per transaction, while Cincinnati was the lowest at $3.75. On average, the out-of-network bank charged $2.76 in fees, while the customer's own bank charged $1.58.
