Driving from Newark, NJ to Laramie, WY in April

I'm driving from Newark, NJ to Laramie, WY in the middle of April and plan to get there in the least amount of time. Google maps give's me three options

A) I-80 the whole way from NJ to WY

B) I-78 to I-70 to Columbus OH toward I-74, I-72 and I-29 to Lincoln NE before re-entering I-80 toward WY

C) I-80 to Austintown in OH and then via Columbus onto I-70, and on toward Lincoln NE along the same routes as in option B).

Which route would cost less in Tolls?
What alternativess do I have to minimize/avoid to much traffic?
Is it worth having an EZ pass from NJ to IL?

Thank you for any suggestions,

I-80 is the Ohio Turnpike leading to the Indiana Turnpike.
I-80 is the fastest. The tolls are not too bad. http://www.ohioturnpike.org/
I-80 has no toll in PA. I-78 is the PA Turnpike (tollroad).

It will cost you $9 to dive across Indiana. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_878169.html

I looks like just about 1800 miles in 3-9 hour days. Fist day to Toledo Ohio and the second day to Des Moines Iowa.
