Why are regional calls not in Five Cents plan, but instead are 21 cents/min.?

Why are "regional calls" not included in Five Cents/minute calling plan, but instead billed at 21 cents/minute !??!

"Local" calls are 9 cents/Call, everywhere else in the U.S. It is 5 cents/minute on the plan.  So regional calls are much more expensive than calls to Hawaii!!

Also how do I find what is the "regional" area (for Manhattan, New York City), and what is the "local" area?  Is there a link  somewhere on the Verizon site to enable finding your own regional area versus local or long distance?
