Taxi upcharge for crossing to Balqa Governate??

The taxi driver was highly recommended by someone we trust. Yesterday he charged 20jod roundtrip to go from near University of Jordan to Fuheis (Princess Tasnim St. by Al Hijaz highway) about a 20 minute ride. He said it's because taxi drivers are not supposed to cross the border of the 2 governates.(Why does 6 jod compensate him for this??). Is this right? A Careem charged 4jod each way today.
